Austrian trenches from WW1 at the base of Piz Laga...
This group of mountains stretch north from Falzarego pass. The area consists of two sections: The routes near the road in the southern aspect of the group that are easily reached from Falzarego pass. The routes approached from the north hiking up the canyon back towards Falzarego pass area cable car or by hiking down canyon from the top of the cable car.
For the southern section of this area drive up the road SR48 from Cortina past Tofana di Rozes to Falzarego pass and park in an appropriate location to access the chosen route.
For the northern routes either take the Falzerego cable car to top of the mountain and descend down the canyon to the base of the wall (be sure to summit and get back in time for the last cable car down) or drive north and hike back up to the base of the mountain. If you choose this method here is the approach:
From Passo Falzarego drive north west down the hill on the Val Parola (road SP24 then on SP 37) to the valley bottom – just beyond the last big hairpin as you enter the Valley floor there is a road to the right (heading east) that goes to a parking lot at a trail to Rifugio Scotoni and at Capanna Alpina. Park at the end of this road. Hike to Rifugio Scotoni and continue beyond the hut on the path to Lagazuoi lake until below the mountain of choice. Leave the path and scramble over the rubble to the base of the face.

: ... : Lagazuoi and Fanis Group
Description general: This is a beautiful line in a pretty little valley with consistently moderate/difficult climbing – not much loose, easy stuff in the way of purely pleasant climbing on compact limestone. There is one very difficult pitch that can be easily passed with a two short sections of aid climbing and some 5.10 free climbing. This pitch should not lead you to avoiding the route. The upper pitches off the ledge are wonderful.Pitch description:Pitch 1 – 60 m III: Start on low angle spur...[more] Browse More Classics in International
