The climb of the Vajolet towers
The dream of every climber: with the help of your Mountain Guide you can fulfill this dream!
The summit of one of the Vajolet towers!
A classic destination for those climbers who love to retrace the paths of the greats of the past,those who wrote important pages in the history of climbing: Tita Piaz to G. Winkler, G Stabeler and many others.
The three classic paths we suggest are the following:
- Delago Tower, Spigolo Piaz, IV+: very suggestive and exposed, with passages that give great satisfaction and exceptional panoramas. The path was opened in 1911 by Tita Piaz “the devil of the Dolomites” along with I. Glaser.
- Stabeler Tower: the simplest path to reach the Tower (normal path). First climbed by G. Stabler along with H. Helversenin 1892. The climb is suitable to everyone who want to venture into the climbing world; it is enough to have experience on “via ferratas” and not to suffer exposition.
- Winkler Tower: one of the most famous of the Dolomites; first climbed by Georg Winkler alone in 1887, with passages of IV+ grade. It still remains landmark for many climbers.
Meeting point: 7.30 am at the Mountain Guides’ office.
