/ Dolomites late may doable?
There are an awful lot of routes in the Dolomites, many with heart stopping traverses, so I wouldn't give so much priority weighting to doing a particular route (if I was you). Every group has its stunners.
As Mike says, one of the biggest problems is actually getting down off the longer routes, via feratta ladders encased in ice metres thick, cables missing completely and so on. And on a lot of the higher routes even south facing the top cracks turn into hundred metres long ice filled nasties and so like me you can end up having to retreat down the north side which can be a full-on alpine experience in ones summer cragging outfit like sandals and no socks!
