Arco 2-day multi-pitch rock climbing trip, Sarca Valley

I went to Campanile Basso di Brenta with Marika. Awesome, nothing less, experienced, kind, calm and female gentleness.

Arco 2-day multi-pitch rock climbing trip, Sarca Valley

I couldn't recommend a climbing guide more highly. Marika is energic, friendly and gave us just what we were looking for, moderate multi-pitch climbing in beautiful settings in the Dolomites, followed each day by the best restaurants and bars. She knows everything about climbing, the routes and as a local, the history of the region. She was also meticulous with safety and kept us in line where needed. Marika met all of our expectations and more. You won't be disappointed when you climb with her.

Arco 2-day multi-pitch rock climbing trip, Sarca Valley

Last days of August 2018. As for more than 10 years I have left Valtellina for a week of climbing in the Dolomites. Our historical, affectionate and appreciated mountain guide Marika. On August 23, 2018, at the suggestion of Marika herself, we let ourselves be guided to the conquest of the "Campanile di Val Montanaia", a spectacular and wild spire. Beautiful ascension, in absolute safety and plaisir. Thanks "great" Marika. Battista.
