FAQs: Mountain Climbing in Italy

What should I know about Mountain Climbing Italy?

Marmolada is the “queen of the Dolomites”, the highest peak in the range, with several summits on its ridge including Punta Penia (3,343 m), Punta Rocca (3,309 m), Punta Ombretta (3,230 m), Monte Serauta (3,069 m), and Pizzo Serauta (3,035 m). Therefore, this stunning mountain also boasts many routes to its top, each with its own unique characteristic. Via ferrata, glacier climbing, and rock climbing are some of the options Marmolada offers during the warmer months, while ski touring and snowboarding are popular winter options. Furthermore, this is an important location from a historical perspective due to its relevance during World War I. Additionally, there is an aerial tramway that goes to Punta Rocca, which makes it an accessible peak even for those who are not well prepared to climb it. However, for those that are, it is well worth the challenge, especially under the guidance of a certified guide!

Bernd was very organised and an incredible guide. Bad weather meant the climb we wanted to do wasn't possible. He was flexible enough to take us to another location in the alps that was just as impressive and challenging but far better conditions .
