Tre Cime di Lavaredo
The Tre Cime di Lavaredo (aka in German, Drei Zinnen) are the symbol of the Italian Dolomites. They are part of the Sesto/Sextener Dolomites. The massif stands alone with no other peaks in the immediate vicinity, which accentuates its height and beauty. While the name indicates three towers, there are actually six named towers, from West to East:Cima Ovest di Lavaredo (Westliche Zinne) -2973mCima Grande di Lavaredo (Große Zinne) - 2998mCima Piccola di Lavaredo (Kleine Zinne) -2857m.Punta di Frida - 2792mCima Piccolissima di Lavaredo (Kleinste Zinne) -2700mTorre Minor (Allerkleinste Zinne)All belays are well equipped with bolts except for those on the finishing pitches.Take a full set of wires, some medium-size friends, some slings and plenty of quickdraws. Although two ropes are recommended, a 60 m rope is sufficient. Hasse Brandler is an amazing route with 18 pitches. It is quite a workout, 6 - 10 hours.
