Summit of Torre di Toblino in the Dolomites Mountains (Italian Alps).­ The ledge behind me is about 5' wide with vertical cliffs of several hundred feet on each side.­ My first climb of a Via Ferrata, and it was a bit above my beginner's level at the time.­ But I managed to reach the summit by myself, and happy to be there!
