Normal Route on the Short Fourth Tower in the 5 Torri

The Route was opened in 1922 by A. Dibona e A. Girardi

The Short Fourth Tower is the most popular of the five towers. It is slightly tilted, providing an easy and pleasant climb to anyone, young and adult. It is the ideal spot to approach mountain climbing in the Dolomites and to learn basic techniques to face a multi-length route.

The Tall Fourth Tower nearby offers instead a beautiful variant along a slightly more vertical and technical face ideal to perfect progression in climbing.
