The Telfer Weißen ( Italian Cime Bianche di Telves ) are several striking peaks made of strikingly light limestone in the Stubai Alps in South Tyrol . The middle main peak has a height of 2588  m slm , the east peak is 2566  m high. This group of peaks forms the last prominent elevation of the Aggls-Rosskopf ridge to the east, with only the Rosskopf ( 2189  m ) in front as the last grassy extension of the ridge. This ridge separates the Pflersch valley in the north from the Ridnaun valley in the south. The mountain takes its name from the double village Telfes in the Ridnaun Valley , which belongs to the municipality of Ratschings . In the southwest flank of the mountain, silver and lead were mined from the end of the 15th century to the end of the 18th century.


The most popular ascent leads from the east, from the mountain station of the Rosskopfbahn, over the Ridnauner Höhenweg south past the Rosskopf, later in a north-westerly direction to the east summit. From there a rock chimney with fixed ropes leads down into a notch and from there it goes over an exposed path, also with fixed ropes, to the main summit (point II ). There are several ways to reach the east summit, either directly via the Rosskopf and the ridge, or north of the Rosskopf via the Vallmingalm . The summit can also be reached from the Ridnaun or Pflersch valley.
