Legendary Dolomites climbs! Many climbs w/ short approaches! Lots of long, moderate alpine routes; picturesque Dolomite towns; authentic Italian food and wine; comfortable lodging in B&B, Hotels.

The Dolomites are the largest lime stone climbing area in the Alps, with walls looming as tall as 1600 Meters (5250 ft) above gentle alpine meadows. Consequently, there is an abundance of classic routes, most of which can be reached with fairly short hikes from the road or with an overnight in one of the rustic huts or mountain lodges. The weather is more southerly influenced, the culture (and food) is a mixture of Italian and Tyrolian and the locals are very welcoming.

In terms of length of climbing relative to approach time, the Dolomites offer some of the best value you can get worldwide. Some climbs in this area are very popular - others see less than one ascent a year. Our programs largely manage to avoid the crowds by avoiding the August high season.

In addition to courses and custom guiding, we offer climbing camps: A concept, that suits a lot of our clients that are confident and self sufficient climbers themselves. Having a guide along in your group assures optimal use of your vacation time and peace of mind, should the going get rough.

Should the weather be consistently bad, we can escape south to the lime stone walls around the Garda Lake. A 2.5 hours drive gets us to rock climbs up to 15 pitches, nice beaches, medieval towns with distinctive Mediterranean ambiance and outstanding pizzerias!

3) Climbing Camp: See under 1) and 2) plus ability to safely lead up to grade 5.6 (V-) on multi-pitch climbs. If you sign up as a rope team of two, at least one of the partners must be a competent leader.
