I decided to climbe on the top during the night to be able to catch the first beams of the Sun. Finally I found out that it was not so difficult as it looks. Only problem was that the Sun appeared only for a very short time and then disappeared behing the clouds. I found a nice video from simillar climbing to Torrre di Toblin there: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5m7KlQXk6xM 217
                                                                                        1 In May of 1915 war came to the Dolomites. Italian and Austrian soldiers fought mainly in the area which you can see in my photo. That time the border run through Tre Cime peaks. The winter of 1916/17 and its avalanches was the deadliest in history. During one 48-hour period in December of 1916, 10,000 men from both sides died as a result of avalanches in the Dolomites.218
