The Mega-Classics include the Preuss-Riss on Cima Piccolissima, (Preuss,1911), The Gelbe Kante on Cima Piccola(Comici), The Comici and the Hasse-Brandler(Hasse,Brandler,Löw,Siegrist 1958) on the North-Face of Cima Grande, the Cassin and the Schweizerweg(Weber,Schelbert 1959) on Cima Ovest. The Comici is arguably the most famous climb in the dolomites. The routes are crowded all summer during good weather.
The rock quality is basically poor but good on the classics, because the loose holds disappear. Mostly crimps.
Get an early start to avoid crowds on the Comici.
The North-Face of Cima Ovest is home to two of the hardest routes in the Alps, namely Panaroma (14b) and Bellavista (14b) which both follow incredbly steep and spectacular lines. These amazing routes were first ascended and free climbed by Alexander Huber.
There are also some nice boltprotected climbs by C. Hainz.(phantom der Zinne(13a), Oetzi trifft Yeti(12b)...)Take some gear. Better wait for warmer weather with no thunderstorms, for ideal conditions.
If it's too cold for the North Faces you can climb the Yellow edge or Oetzi trifft Yeti(noon-evening sun) on Cima Piccola)
The approaches are obvious from the parking lot at the Rifugio Auronzo hut.
Go around left for Cima Ovest and right/straight for the rest.
