Monte Averau (R), and Croda da Lago (L).
These climbing sector of the Dolomites is situated near the Passo Giau which is located south of Cortina on the narrow road 638. It is fairly isolated, has a lot of hikers and an easy Via Ferrata on Averau peak right off the top of the pass
Drive south of Cortina, take road 638 left rather than going on to Passo Falzarego. As you approach Passo Giau, the Lastoni di formin wall will be on your left (East) and at the pass, Averau peak in on the right (West)

Monte Averau should have it's own area and not be grouped in with either the Nuvolau or Croda da Lago.
