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