Tre Cime di Lavaredo (Drei Zinnen) Group

Dolomites, ITALY

Climbs 100 – Rocktype Dolerite – Altitude 2500m a.s.l – Faces all

Crag features
The iconic Dolomite symbol the 3 Towers play host to a multitude of famous and historic climbs. From a rock climbers point of view there are 5 peaks each with steep North Faces. Development is still going on, as aid routes are freed and previously 'impossible' lines are aided.

There are just over 100 recorded routes on the Tre Cime. For the purposes of this page I've only added the well known classics, see "Tre Cime Classic and Modern Routes" for a full list!

*I've stuck with the grading system used in the guidebooks as due to the number of insitu pitons constantly changing it is hard to give an English trad grade. For routes with alot of insitu pitons or bolt protection I've also added a French Sport Grade. None of the routes at the Tre Cime could be considered purely multi pitch sport however! Equally Alpine grades ranging from AD to ED2 could be used.

Access notes
From Cortina follow signs for Misurina. The Tre Cime are then well signposted from Misurina. Rifugio Auronzo (2330m) and car park is the ideal place to stay and can be reached along the signposted toll road (20). It is then a 30 minute walk to Rifugio Lavaredo where the North Faces can be accessed from.
