The Lagazuoi 5 Torri area is of considerable interest to mountaineers because of its numerous peaks, characterised by excellent rock, favourable exposure and easy access.
Some walls have acquired a well-deserved place in the history of mountaineering, like the stupendous Scotoni with the classic Vie Lacedelli and Via dei Fachiri and the Skotonata galatika; others, such as Torre Falzarego, are ideal for those who are beginners at mountaineering and for the first climbs of the season.
On several of the peaks there are classical climbs of great attraction, such as the Torre del Lago with its Diedro Dall'Oglio or the Col dei Bos with the Spigolo Sud.
The Cinque Torri (the
) constitute without doubt the most important practice wall in the area.
There are a good 108 routes traced out on these walls, with difficulty ranging from 2° to 8°.
It is on account of this great variety that the area is greatly utilised for the organisation of rock-climbing sessions and for introductory courses in mountaineering.
And let's not forget the splendid routes marked out on the south side of the Averau and on Ra Gusela.
