Description 

The huge south face of the Tofana di Rozes sports all kinds of climbs. They are on generally nice rock, and often historic, like the Dimai Eotvos or the Pilastro. Punta Anna and Tofana di Mezzo also contain popular Ferratas and less well traveled rock climbs.

Getting There 

From the quaint mountain town of Cortina d' Ampezzo, the trailhead for Tofana di Rozes takes only about 25 minutes to reach by car. Drive up the Falzarego Pass road to marker 113.8km and turn right onto the well-signed paved road for Rifugio Dibona. A couple of miles up the paved but potholed road the road turns to dirt at the fork in the road. Go left here towards Rifugio Dibona on the dirt road to the parking area at the Rif. Dibona. The dirt road is passable by passenger car just go easy in a few spots.

While it's the smallest buttress of the classic buttresses on the south face, the South Arete is a striking arete offering great climbing and fantastic position. It's a perfect warm-up and gauge for the other, bigger routes on the south face. Many of the belays are on nice ledges and while much of the climbing isn't directly on the arete, it still has an exhilarating, airy and exposed feeling it to. Because of the length of the route, it's difficult to describe in detail the pitch-by-pitch ac...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
