Tofane Group

In this chapter we discuss one of the most impressive and famous formations of the Ampezzo Dolomites, the magnificent Tofane Group.

The Tofane Group represents the most majestic massif of the entire Ampezzo Valley and the Eastern Dolomites and, exactly, they are situated to the west of Cortina d'Ampezzo, between the Falzarego Pass and the Val di Fanes. The Tofane mountaineering exploration is indisputable, the first ascent was carried out by the Austrian Paul Grohmann and the Francesco Lacedelli. On August 1863, they conquered the highest peak, the Tofana di Mezzo of 3244 meters.

The following year, then, Lacedelli, Dimai and Siorpaes reached the Tofana di Rozes, the southernmost, of 3225 m and finally the same ones, in 1865, conquered the Tofana di Dentro, 3238 m. The second and third of the Tofane once housed a small glacier, now completely gone because of the rise in temperatures and winters more mild and less snowy.
