Description 

When viewing the Tre Cime group from the south side, the south side of Cima Ovest is mountain which makes up the far left (West) end of the group. It has many routes on the North, West and South faces.

Getting There 

From the parking lot at the Rifugio Auronzo hut:
For the South face go right/straight along the large path/road below the south faces of the Tre Cime group branching off quickly an heading for the col between Cimia Grande and Cima Ovest. A short distance (10-20 meters) prior to the col climb up a gully to the left and follow a complex approach to the wall (best to use directions from a guide for the specific route).
For the West and North faces you can branch off the path sooner and follow path 105 over Forcella Col di Mezzo to the base or you can traverse around the North side from Rifugio Lavaredo.
