Together with the Punta delle Cinque Dita and the Langkofeleck, the Punta Grohmann forms a characteristic profile of the Val Gardena Dolomites
Sas da duman the Punta Grohmann peak is called in Ladin. The mountain is 3,114 m high and only a bit lower than the Sassolungo, the highest mountain of the Sassolungo Group. Seen from the Passo Sella, the Punta Grohmann together with the 3,081 m high Langkofeleck and the 2,918 m high Punta delle Cinque Dita (Fünffingerspitze) forms a characteristic profile.
In 1875 the mountain was named after the Austrian alpinist Paul Grohmann (1838-1908) and five years later climbed for the first time.
