DescriptionThis is the formation which dominates the skyline as you climb the Passo Giau from the south. It lies southwest of the Cinque Torri and west of the Nuvolau. The majority of the climbs are on it's south face.
Getting ThereThere are three approaches of varying length and difficulty.
First, one can approach from the northwest from the Cinque Torri either by the chair lift from the Passo Falzareggo Road or the Rifugio Scoiattoli.
Secondly, one can approach from the road up the south side of the Passo Giau, by taking the ski lift from the parking area 2km west of the top of the pass.
Third, one can approach the formation by parking at the top of the Passo Giau and hiking from there. This is the approach recommended by Kohler and Memmel, but seems to include an unnecessary up and down and a lot of walking.
