Click to enlarge On this day we were going to do the VF Piz de Lech near Covera, but as we drove there we could see that the mountain was covered in black cloud, so we decided to drive to another pass in the hope of evading rain. We ended up in Canazei and decided to do the VF dei Finanzieri - Colac. We caught the Ciampac cable up Rif Tobia del Giagher. The pics shown to the left and right show the peak we were to climb to.
