The Langkofel (Ladin: Saslonch; Italian: Sassolungo; German: Langkofel) (3,181m) is the highest mountain of the Langkofel Group in the Dolomites in South Tyrol, Italy. It stands over the Ladin community of Val Gardena.

Climbing[edit]

The mountain is a serious climb, and it is essential to bring full climbing equipment. Pitons line the main routes. The normal route starts at the Sella Pass, at about 2,200m above sea level. Paul Grohmann was the first to reach the summit in 1869.[2]
