Then on July 1881 the smallest mountain (2857 meters) was climbed by Michel and Hans Innerkofler. It is interesting to note that one of the guides on the first climb was also an Innerkofler (Franz).Oddly enough the route up the small mountain peak is the most difficult, but the three original routes up these Dolomite peaks are still used today. The year 2007 marks the tenth 'Drei Zinnen Alpine Run', a 17.5 meter run with a 1350 vertical drop. ... continue below the picture...
