Climb the Tomaselli via ferrata in the heart of the Dolomite mountains.
Sense the legends that cover the mountainside.
View the grim remnants of the trenches used in the First World War.
Engage in a challenging 1-day climb on the Tomaselli via ferrata in Passo Falzarego, a high mountain pass at 2,105 meters, which connects the commune of Agordo with Cortina, that lies in the heart of the Dolomite mountains.
Its good quality rock and scenic location makes this via ferrata a beautiful climb. The via ferrata climbs to the top of Punta Sud, one of the summits of the Fanes Group.
The mountain pass of Falzarego, meaning False King in Italian, refers to the local legend of a greedy king who attempted to betray his own people for even more gold. Yet his pact with his enemy backfired and was turned to stone. His petrified face apparently set in stone along the rock face of the Lagazuoi Piccolo mountain.
The legendary landscape combines with the history of one of Europe’s darkest hours. At the beginning of the Tomaselli via ferrata we will encounter the abandoned trails and trenches of the First World War, the scars along the mountainside.
As for the climbing level, this is one of the more difficult via ferratas of the Dolomite mountains given its steep incline and lack of artificial holds. This, combined with its high exposure makes the via ferrata a challenging climb.
Get in touch now to reserve your place on a full day of climbing in Passo Falzarego on the Tomaselli via ferrata. This challenging climb mixes good-quality terrain with a landscape full of history and legend.
I was born in 1961, I live in Campitello di Fassa, in the Dolomites, together with my family. I have two sons, one is a mountain guide, the other is a ski instructor. I am a certified mountain guide since 1982, an instructor of guides, alpine ski instructor and a Federal coach for ISEF.
Being in the mountains has always been my passion, guiding people, teaching them climbing, mountaineering... during the various seasons of the year. I very much enjoy drawing nice curves in fresh powder snow and discover the charm of the frozen waterfalls.
My curriculum and professional mountaineering is made of many ascents and some openings of routes in the Dolomites and the Alps. I climbed in Yosemite Valley (California), Ben Nevis (Scotland) and Norway, Greece, Spain and Sardinia. I did also several high altitude climbs like Mt Denali (Alaska), Ama Dablam (6828m), Cho Oyu (8201m), Manaslu (8163m), Shivling in India (6545m), Cotopaxi and Chimborazo in Ecuador (5897m and 6310m), Patagonia (Argentina).
Feel free to get in touch with me if you are coming in the Dolomites for skiing (alpine, freeride and ski touring), rock climbing, sport climbing and multi pitch climbing. It will be my pleasure to guide you here and let you discover my secret spots.
This was a life changing experience! Etienne was super professional and all three of us felt completely safe during the via ferratas! I never though we could climb such a difficult Via Ferrata like Cesco Tomaselli on the second day, but with his experience, teachings and the confidence transmitted we were able to climb that Monster! And what an amazing adventure it was! Never felt so alive in my life! Etienne can help and guide during the ascend but at the same time it seems like we are climbing a rock wall with a friend! Super friendly and with a vast knowledge of the dolomites area. He even took my backpack when I felt exhausted due to the heat. Thank you very much for the 2 days and for sure next year we\'ll be there for more adventures! João Carvalhosa
