Surround yourself in the beautiful Dolomite mountainside while climbing the via ferrata Punta Anna with IFMGA-certified guide Etienne.
Climb the via ferrata that offers fantastic views of the Cortina Valley.
Challenge yourself to one of the more difficult climbs in the region.
The good quality of rock and superb protection creates an excellent climb.
Looking out from the vibrant alpine town of Cortina, in the heart of the Dolomites, the Tofane mountain group forms a stunning setting.
Along a section of the Tofane mountains is the via ferrata Punta Anna, at 2,731 meters. From here is a great way to enjoy the Dolomites.
To reach the beginning of our route we will either drive up to the Dibona refuge or take a cable car, either means will get us to the Pomedes refuge. Once here, the jagged ridge that soars skywards and leads to the dramatic Punta Anna will be our challenge.
The quality of rock and the excellent protection makes this via ferrata a fantastic climb, especially when you realise the superb exposure it offers.
As we rise above the Cortina valley, the dramatic landscape opens up, being able to view the beautiful collection of mountains of Cinque Torri, as well as the king of the Dolomites, Monte Antelao, which soars to 3,263 meters.
Due to the level of difficulty being intermediate, potential participants are expected to have previous via ferrata experience. In addition, it is necessary to have a good level of fitness for this 1-day climb.

I was born and raised in Campitello, in Val di Fassa. I am a ski instructor and mountain guide.
My parents have always practiced mountaineering, both for leisure and business, and the apple doesn't fall far from the tree! Skiing and climbing were my favourite activities growing up.
As the years went by, I became more and more skilled and experienced under the watch of my father, both in techniques and safety measures. I learned the craft of mountain guide and ski instructor from him, since when his clients or students agreed, I would join them in the mountain.
But the true passion started when I moved to Tione for my studies.
I became ski instructor at 19 and mountain guide at 21.
Our guide Bruno was a very experienced mountaineer who made us feel safe throughout the via ferrata. The via feratta Punta Anna itself is an amazing experience and I am so glad we did it. The climb can be quite challenging at times with some climbing technique needed, but even my boyfriend who has vertigo managed to do it. It is absolutely stunning, with many good footholds and handholds so we could rest when needed. Explore-share was also really good at communicating with us before the trip to update us of our change of guides etc.
Our excursion landed on a rainy day and Etienne was great at suggesting alternative options in light of the weather. We ended up having a lot of fun despite the rain and having lunch with locals is a great travelling experience in itself! Thanks to Etienne and Fernando for a great day!
Etienne made the day absolutely amazing for the 3 of us. His communication before hand regarding meeting place and time was excellent. After a brief discussion regarding our previous experience we decided on a medium category Via Ferrata route. This was challenging for us and was exactly what we wanted. Etienne gave us great instruction both at the foot of the climb and once on it with great tips and encouragement . He also pointed out places of interest to us. He really made us feel secure and confident to take on the challenge and we would highly recommend Etienne for anyone looking to try their hand at Via Ferrata.
We highly recommend Etienne for your outdoor adventures. We were really impressed with how he worked to customize our trip based on our specific skill set and interests. Etienne is friendly and knowledgeable!
This was one of the highlights of our visit to the Dolomites. We are a family of 4 (2 teenagers) and are not experienced climbers. Etienne was supportive and helpful throughout and led us to the top of Punta Anna. It was a little more challenging than we expected but he was patient and took extra time and care to help us reach the peak. The views were totally worth it, and the expeience is something we talk about as a family that was amazing. I would recommend Etienne to everyone!

I was a bit upset the night before the climb to find my guide was I\'ll and asked another guide to take his place. His father Renato Bernard was excellent and I had a wonderful climb and day. Fantastic!
had a great experience climbing Punta anna with Etien he was a fantastic guide and I would defiantly be interested in booking another climb with him
Etienne was fantastic and we would definitely work with him again. He has a nice, pleasant personality, so we were happy to spend the day with him. He also has a sense of expertise and trustworthiness that makes you feel more comfortable and confident in your activity. We ended up doing 2 little ferratas instead of Punta Anna, which was a good decision. We are novices and were concerned about the inclement weather during our trip. The day before our climb we had severe thunderstorms that made us both very nervous. Etienne met up with us the night before and discussed alternative plans. Being about to meet him face to face and discuss our desires and concerns in person made us feel much better going into the experience and also with Etienne as our guide. I also loved that he took pictures of us and sent them to us afterwards. It\'s so nice to have beautiful, high quality pictures of the experience!
