Heritage of our Fathers

It’s quiet. Midweek at the end of June. Perfect for a visit to the Tre Cime. It’s the kind of day you see only choughs and beams of bright sunlight that reveal the Dolomites for what they really are. From the north face of the Cima Grande, a distant sound of clinking can be heard. Then the sound of a hammer. Just a few precise, effective strikes.
