Other routes in the dolomites

Most pictures are taken in the area near the Passo di Fasso, between Val Gardena and Campitello. We focused mainly on the cliffs that we know have good rock climbing routes on them or that just looked good as we were close. Some pictures are taken from Pordoispitze (Piz Pordoi), but we did not follow the route that goes to Cortina D'Ampezzo, where i beleive the road is as impressive as the one of the Passo di Fasso.
