Description

Located in northeastern Italy, the Dolomites are home to more than 170 via ferrata routes. Join me for one or more days to have an amazing time in this Italian rocky paradise.

This beautiful mountain range is characterized by its huge towers, pinnacles, spires and vertical limestone walls. The Dolomites are a UNESCO World Heritage Site and they are a world renown destination for via ferrata. In fact, this is where via ferrata was born!

In this occasion I propose you to design a program according to your wishes and time available in the area. Anything from meeting for a half day and share one via ferrata route, to embarking on a multi-day adventure to explore the best routes of the mountain range.

Some of my favourite spots are:

  • Marmolada west ridge. A classic route in the Dolomites which takes a full day includes crossing a glacier. A rather easy via ferrata, although glacier crossing has to be considered.
  • Tridentina Sella, in the Sella group. A challenging via ferrata with easy access, with beautiful views of the mountains and the village at the foot of the massif. It can be done in a half day.
  • Mesules, in the Sella group. One of the oldest via routes in the area, doable in a half day. A very demanding exposed via ferrata which starts at the Sella pass and ends at the summit of Piz Selva.
  • Roda de Vael and Masarè, in the Rosengarten group. Two routes close by which we can easily do in the same day. Masarè is the most demanding of the two, but also incredibly beautiful.

But there are many more incredible routes!

Send me a request so we can start planning, the potential of the Dolomites for via ferrata is immense! It will be my pleasure to guide you there. I also offer via ferrata courses for all levels which you can check out.

About the guide

guide profile img

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.
