The Cima Grande
150 years of alpinism in the Sesto Dolomites
On 21.08.1869 the same rope team that overcame the Punta dei Tre Scarperi also conquered the Cima Grande, whereupon the climbers Grohmann, Innerkofler and Salcher became the very first to achieve this feat.
In their honour, a large mountain festival will be taking place around the Tre Cime di Lavaredo and the surrounding valleys. Special highlights include the time capsule installation at the A. Locatelli Hut and historic experiences in Val Fiscalina. In the evening there will be a film première of the documentary, “The Grosse Zinne” with Reinhold Messner in Dobbiaco ice stadium.
