A perfect second climb after doing the Comici on the Piccola. Head (west) down the gully after the rappel from the Piccola until you get to a big boulder in the scree. Find the red paint and head up the Torre Grande for 3 or 4 fun pitches.


Lots of fixed or cemented pins.

Doing these two routes (the Torre Grande di Falzarego - West Face and the Torre Piccola di Falzarego - South Arete) in an afternoon from Cortina is a perfect outing. Both are reasonable solos. I've done the Comici both ways. If you solo, take a light 150' 7mm cord for the rap off of Piccola. If you want to risk it - you probably can catch a rappel from other parties and not take a rope (sort of like coming off the Grand Teton). The Torre Grande is a walk off or light scramble to the north, then west.

At least 2 routes exist on the West Face of the Grosser Falzaregoturm, and both are rated as UIAA Gr. IV climbs. Since the original poster here mentioned the red arrow marking, I would conclude he did the "Alpini Route." The Lussato Route close to the chasm between towers is not marked.
