The Cime Fanis in the Fanes Group consist of the Southern, the Northern and the Middle Fanis Peak (with Mt. Cima Scotoni).
Three Fanis Peaks rise in the mighty Fanes Group in the Dolomites: the Northern (2,969 m a.s.l.), the Middle (2,889 m a.s.l.) and the Southern Fanis Peak (2,980 m a.s.l.). They are bordered by the Big Lagazuoi in the south, whereas the Small Lagazuoi is located in a south-westerly direction.
Also the Tofane, one of the most remarkable and striking mountain massifs in this area, can be found in the immediate vicinity. The demanding Cesco Tomaselli Route, a classic amongst the via ferrata routes of the Dolomites but also one of the most difficult, leads to the 2,980 m high Southern Fanis Peak.
The access to the route, located near the Della Chiesa Bivouac, can be reached from the Passo di Falzarego mountain pass. The via ferrata passes beneath old wooden ladders dating back to WWI - this area was the setting of the so-called Mountain Warfare 1915-1918. Also the Dolomite High Route no. 1, a 150 km long long-distance trail, snakes its way beneath the impressive Fanis Peaks.
