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.
