Monte Piana – Italian Dolomites

A few pics from a recent ascent of Monte Piana in the Italian dolomites, climbing the via ferrata to the top. This was the Austrian supply route to the front line on the summit plateau – one of the worst battlefields of the First World War.  A great day out, but a sobering place – still littered with trenches and wire after the passage of 100 years.
