I feel with you, but I see that one of the peaks you climbed was the Paternkofel, and that you took some good photos from it. We climbed it in 1996, but from the Forcella Lavaredo. A very nice peak.
Thank you for the kind comment. The ferrata on Peitlerkofel is among the easier ones. As far as I understand, Messner's first mountain was Sass Rigais, a little more to the south, which he climbed at the age of 5 years with his father (he was born at he foot of it).
