Tofana di Rozes is one of three massifs in the area of Le Tofane. The altitude of Tofana di Rozes is 3 225 m above sea. It is located in the north part of Italy , in Dolomites, west of the city Cortina d´Ampezzo .

The mountain of pink limestone

The nickname comes from the characteristic pinkish colour of the limestone that forms the rock massif. The summit of Tofana di Rozes can be ascended by a marked route or by a very difficult iron route (Via Ferrata) , called G. Lipalia. If you decide to climb the via ferrata, the helmet and the head torch is a must because the route is led through an 800- metre-long tunnel named Castelletto.

Castelletto Tunnel and war traces and monuments

The tunnel was mined by soldiers during the First World War. It is not the only reminder the soldiers had left behind. Under Tofana di Rozes, you will come across lots of barbed wire and also dwellings carved in the rock. Even today, you may find pieces of iron shell splinters, old cans, etc. In the nearby pass you can identify the whole defensive complex with little crenels that had been built in the rock.

Via Ferrata
