Description 

The huge south face of the Tofana di Mezzo spots all kinds of climbs. They are on generally nice rock, and often historic, like the Dimai Eotvos or the Pilastro.


Getting There 

From Cortina, drive towards the Falzarego-Passo, and turn right when you see the sign Tofana. The little road takes you to the hut. From here follow the obvious trail to the south face, ca 1h.

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
