Since 2003, the Rosengarten Mountain Range – Catinaccio in Italian and Ciadenac, Ciadenáze in the Ladin language of the locals – is part of the Schlern-Rosengarten Nature Reserve. The Rosengarten is located between Welschnofen in Eggental on the west side and the Fassatal valley on the east side. It runs from north to south, from the Schlern massif in the north to the Karerpass in the south and is about 8 km long.
- The main peak of the Rosengarten is called Rosengartenspitze. This summit is 2,981 m high and therefore just the second highest of the Rosengarten's peaks, but it is the most prominent of the mountain range and is located right in the middle of it. The Rosengartenspitze is about 1 km long, running from NNE to SSW. Its most beautiful ridge consists of the Nordgipfel, or northern peak, (2.919 m), Hauptgipfel, main peak, (2.981 m) and Südgipfel, southern peak (2.913 m). The sheer cliff of the eastern wall (600 m) is the most formidable bluff of this mountain range.
- The British mountaineers Charles Comyns Tucker and T. H. Carson with their guide Francois Devouassoud were the first to scale the Rosengartenspitze on August 31, 1874. They took the route used most commonly these days (via the western slope and northern ridge). This normal route can be reached from Kölner Hütte via the Santnerpass fixed cable route. Or you can climb up from the Vajolet valley in the east (a comparatively long ascent).
- The highest peak of the Rosengarten range is Kesselkogel peak at 3004 m. It can be reached via a fixed cable route from Grasleitenpass. The British mountaineers Charles Comyns Tucker and T. H. Carson with their guide A. Bernard were the first to scale the Kesselkogel in 1873. One of the two fixed cable routes follows the path that the two mountaineers took and makes the Kesselkogel one of the most scaled peaks of the Rosengarten range. The Kesselkogel is not very crowded by other peaks and is therefore the summit with one of the best views of the Dolomites.
- The six Vajolet-Türme (Vajolet "towers") form a ragged rock formation in the center of the Rosengarten range. They are bordered to the north by Vajoletpass (2459 m) and to the south by Laurinspass (2627 m). They are subdivided into three northern and three southern towers, each with its own base, separated by Winklerscharte (2650 m). The three southern towers are the most known peaks. They feature better rock material and thus become the showpiece of the Alps.
They are known as the climbing mountains. Some of the most known routes in the medium difficulty range are located on these towers. During high season, many visitors come to hike here.
