Canale Holtzer

A long, steep and partly narrow colouir. If there is not large amounts of snow, there is a short section in the middle where you will need to rapell (there is an anchor that you can use). It is easy to reach from the top of the Pordoi Cablecar, no skins needed! After exiting the couloir, follow Val Lasties down past the Refugio and back to the lift system.
