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.

The crux is the overhanging stemming corner on the third pitch.There are several fixed descents off this tower. If one is planning on linking this climb with Torre Winkler then the first rappel goes down through a tight crevice to the north to gain a large traverse ledge. Head east for about 50-100 feet then tunnel back around to the south east side of the tower to find the next anchor. From there several rappels lead either to the start of the more popular Torre Winkler routes or one can con...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
