Description 

Three beautiful limestone towers, Torre Delago, Torre Stabeler and Torre Winkler, just north of the Rosengarten group. This area is steeped in climbing history. The Torre Winkler was first climbed(free solo both up and down) in 1887(!) by Georg Winkler. Vajolet is Italian for violet.

The Torre Winkler was the setting for the opening sequence of the movie 'Cliffhanger.'

Getting There 

Take the paved road from Pera di Fassa, usually by a bus/taxi to just below the Rifugio Gardeccia. From there follow the marked path and scramble upwards to the Rifugio Alberto/Gartl Hut. This hut is a great place to stay with reasonable prices. Total time on approach is 1.5-2 hours.

Featured Route For Vajolet Towers

South-west Arete (Delagokante) 5.7 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b PG13  Europe : Italy : ... : Torre Delago
The crux is probably the first pitch as you climb up to gain the arete. Once on the arete follow it for three amazing pitches to the summit.For the descent rappel down the east side of the tower from fixed anchors. Six 20m rappels or three 40m rappels hit the ground. If you are planning on continuing up the Tower Stabeler, forego the last 20m rappel. The more popular routes on Torre Stabeler begin here....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
