Well, I have two remarks about part "First times on Punta Penia".
First is that Grohmann & co summited via east face of punta Penia. North face of punta penia is something else.
And second thing id that Tuckett's route is west ridge, and not face.
Otherwise, this is good page.

Marmolada Via Ferrate

Just climbed this peak and there are three Via Farratas: West Ridge (VF FASSA13 - Grade 4C in the Cicerone Guide) to Punta Penia, East Ridge (VF Eterna Brigata Cadore - 5C) to Punta Serauta and the South Ridge "normal route" from the glacier to Punta Penia. The latter is short VF2 that has probably been created recently, as I could not find it in any book. It's a busy tourist route in the summer as it is accessible from the Seggiovia lift and non-technical, apart from one crevasse crossing.
