What people are saying about Rock Climbing | Cortina D'Ampezzo



Etienne is a very experience local guide who knows the area very well. He guided my boyfriend and I for 2 days. The first day, we went on a 13 multi-pitch climb up Tre Cime di Lavaredo and Etienne guided us up the mountain efficiently and safely while also taking time to explain to us some basic mountaineering concepts and our surrounding mountains. We started at 7am and was rappeling down by 3pm as he had originally estimated. The 2nd day was a more casual single pitch sport day where Etienne gave us some private instructions on how to efficiently climb outside using more legs and less arms. We are very happy with the service Etienne provided, he had great communication skills and spoke great english. We would consider him for future guided trips in the area again.



Etienne was an excellent rock climbing guide and also thoroughly enjoyable company throughout our climb. We climbed Dibona Arete on Cime Grande together. A wonderful climb, although for me some challenging moves which I only completed because Etienne was taking great care of belaying me. I've no hesitation in recommending Etienne. Very well organised by explore-share.com too.



Giovanni was an exceptionally wonderful guide! Our family spent the day with him climbing in Cinque Torri. He was incredibly patient with our children, and was able to find routes that we all enjoyed climbing. We loved every minute of the day and would recommend this trip to any family interested in doing some sport climbing near Cortina/Cinque Torri.



My Guide Robert Cecco WAS AMAZING! I would highly recommend



Greetings to Marica - excellent arrangements !
