Description

Discover the incredible sport of dry-tooling, which combines ice and rock climbing, on this fantastic 2-day trip. Come with me to the Italian Alps to Champorcher or Ceserole.

Dry-tooling is a sport that combines techniques of both rock and ice climbing. It involves rock climbing with ice axe and/or crampons or rock shoes.

During these two days, I’ll help you gain confidence as I guide you through the mountain. We’ll go step by step, assessing safety and learning how to use the equipment. We’ll start with the easier routes and slowly increase the difficulty.

We can go to either Champorcher or Ceresole. Camporcher, in the Aosta Valley, is a beautiful historic valley surrounded by incredible views and castles. Ceserole, in Turin, is another stunning Italian town with lakes and ice cascades. Both are incredible choices for dry-tooling.

What better place to learn dry-tooling than in a cute Italian town? Book your place now and join me on this exhilarating 2-day intro to this exciting sport!

If you are looking for more adventures in the area, I also offer a rock climbing trip in Mont Blanc, a hiking tour in Gran Paradiso and others. Be sure to check them out!

Mountain Guide

My biggest satisfaction is to explore new places, and share it with a rope-mate. And to do it as a professional is the realization of a dream. At the age of 15, I knew I wanted to become a mountain guide, I wanted to live in the mountains, teach and share my new passion. In 2006 I realized my dream and I became a professional mountain guide. I like sharing my knowledge and experience with my clients, taking a journey that transforms slowly the guide-client relationship in climbing partner and often in friendship. I am not and never will be a lone climber but "a company" 'explorer. My specialty lies certainly in climbing on ice and mixed in the high mountains. With my clients I climbed the most difficult faces in the Alps, explored mountain ranges, traveled between America, Asia, Africa, and Europe.

This was intended to be 10 days of skill building with the ultimate goal of climbing one of the 6 great north faces of the Alps. I'd climbed some mountains graded PD/AD- before and did a few mountaineering courses but didn't have much experience climbing ice, mixed or steep snow. This course blew my expectations out of the water. Enrico is the best guide I've ever had, from a combination of technical skill, patience, knowledge of all aspects and good nature. We climbed something every single day (!). I really progressed my ice climbing which was the main goal for me and many times during the course I came away feeling that I'd surprised myself by getting to the top. Enrico did a great job judging my level and found options every day to challenge but not overwhelm me. I came to trust his judgement and really appreciate the time we got to spend climbing some great routes. 10/10.

The trip arranged by Enrico was fantastic. We had to change plans to focus on some different climbs. Enrico was thoroughly professional in his trip planning. Jenn and I had fantastic time and can recommend both Explore Share and Enrico highly

Spend 4 days with Enrico - training for a north face attempt next year. Enrico was a superb guide across all aspects - technical skills, coaching skills and all round mountaineering skills. Enrico‘s experience in the Alps is second to none and I thoroughly enjoyed the 4 days - which Enrico planned to cover a range of skills and exposure including ice climbing, dry tooling, multi pitch mixed routes and on day 4 we were ‘blessed’ with a storm high up on ‘Via dai Cristallieri’ - what a great challenge to finish the 4 days. I’m addition.to being a phenomenal climber and teacher - Enrico was a perfect host and nothing was too much trouble. I had the pleasure to stay in Arvier, at Enrico and Ilaria’s fantastic B&B - Maison de la Montagne. Overall I would highly recommend Enrico as a guide and tutor for the mountains and also Explore Share for linking me up.
