Ford Weekend Adventures planned a mountain bike ride.
October 8, 2020
Accommodation: 1000-star tent in the open air or at Camping Fiemme Village, which adds a few more stars.fiemmevillage.it/deThe aim of this adventurous mountain tour on the Latemar massif in the Dolomites southeast of Bolzano is to take a picture of the Torre di Pisa - the leaning tower of Pisa, which is leaning against the wind at a height of 2,636 meters.Of course, it is not the original tower, nobody has carried it here from Pisa, which is over 300 kilometers away. The local Torre di Pisa is an impressive rock in the western Dolomites, but it is at least as crooked as its namesake at sea level. Only with the small but subtle difference that this corner of the Dolomites is hardly developed for tourism. One more reason to finally climb the Tower of Pisa instead of just leaning towards it.It starts at the valley station of the Tresca lift west of Pampeago. There is a small parking lot here. The first kilometer is still quite leisurely without major inclines, then the route branches off to the right into the terrain. On a fallow mountain path it is now uphill, the summit already firmly in view - this saves the detour via Baita della Scofa.At the Passo Feudo mountain station you can take a short break before it gradually becomes steeper along the ridge. Gradients of around 30% are not uncommon here, which is why you need to be sure-footed. After a total of 4.4 kilometers, you have almost reached the summit. Here is the Rifugio Torre di Pisa, a hosted refuge that invites you to refresh yourself.The Torre di Pisa is hidden between a few other equally impressive rocks just a few hundred meters further along the ridge. However, to ascend you need professional climbing equipment and you should have some experience, as well as a few climbing colleagues. Of course, it is a great feeling to stand on the leaning tower of Pisa, but otherwise the rock is also a good photo opportunity. The great thing about it: Here in the Dolomites there are guaranteed not to be any tourists standing in the way if you want to take the typical "I-support-the-tower-of-Pisa-from-picture".Return the same way down to the Passo Feudo mountain station. Here you can take the cable car into the valley to Residenza, which is not far from the car park.I spent the night after this impressive day in my thousand-star tent under the open sky. Alternatively, you can also find accommodation at Camping Fiemme Village. The campsite is a good stopover on the way to the next adventure.

@Ford Weekend Adventures for me the adventure starts on my own doorstep and in times of Corona, everyone who is looking for an adventure will not be able to drive through euros and the rest of the world. Who is actually responsible for this? How do I communicate with one person with real name ...
