Tofana di Rozes

Tofana di Rozes is a mountain in the Dolomites, located west of the resort of Cortina d’Ampezzo in northern Italy. At an elevation of 3,225 metres (10,581 ft), the mountain was first climbed by Paul Grohmann and local hunter Francesco Lacedelli in 1864. Most ascents of Tofana di Rozes are made from the north, where the mountain is a relatively easy hike, or from the west, where the summit can be reached by a via ferrata; this photograph shows the more challenging south face, which was first climbed in 1901.
