Tofana di Rozes (Vordere Tofana or Tofana I) at 3,225 meters - the last 3,000-meter bike for the season?We used the last beautiful autumn weekend and made our way towards Cortina D'Ampezzo. We started our tour near the Passo di Falzàrego at La Locanda Del Cantoniere, because our destination should be the Tofana.A typical Italian military road led us to the former rifugio, which is unfortunately quite dilapidated today. From there you can see a huge mountain world, we could even see the Zillertal Alps. From now on it was said: carry the bikes!The whole mountain was repeatedly covered with complete ice fields and some places to climb awaited us. Martin continued to pull it off, we were struggling without the bikes and were storing them up. Nonetheless, we really wanted to go up to the summit and enjoy the view, it was already within our grasp.But about 150 meters before the summit we unfortunately had to make the decision to turn around. We didn't have a chance without crampons. We didn't expect everything to be so icy. It's a shame, but it doesn't help and so we started downhill.The trail was very difficult, even without the snow and ice: everything almost mobile or almost everything mobile ?! From the rifugio the trail to the car was awesome. It's a shame we couldn't make the summit, but we still had a great day with a breathtaking autumn backdrop.
