Itinerary

Day 1: Passo Giau - Ra Gusela - Via Pia

The simple approach of just over 30 minutes makes Via Pia a suitable first route without too much effort. For those who climb at ease on the 6th/b Via Pia offers a fun climb with always excellent rock. For those who prefer a route with less difficulties, we will stay a few meters further to the left on Via Dallago.

The whole climb takes place in front of a wonderful panorama and from the top you can see the most beautiful mountains of the Dolomites with a single glance: Civetta, Pelmo, Marmolada and Tofana!

Day 2: Torri del Vajolet - Via Winkler

We will follow the trace of  one of the most daring climbs of end of the 1800s: the Finkura Winkler, a solo route climbed by Georg Winkler at the age of 17, when shoes and magnesite were just science fiction! The rock is always of great quality and the environment of the Torri del Vajolet is one of the most characteristic of the Dolomites.

Day 3: Passo Sella - Via Delenda Cartago

The area of ​​Passo Sella is ideal for short days, maybe of uncertain weather or for the last day when tiredness starts to be felt and we need to face the return journey lateer. The route we propose is Delenda Cartago, 180 meters of beautiful rock with holes in the 6th and a 6b step, with a beautiful view of the Fassa valley. The route is on the first Torre di Sella, an excellent panorma view point to admire the Sasso Lungo!

About the guide

My name is Piergiorgio. I was born in the warm south of Italy and grew up in Florence where I first started climbing.

At the age of 21 I graduated with a degree in Forestry and Environmental Sciences, yet rock climbing had energized my life in such a positive way that I realized that I had to live fully in the vertical world.

It was then that radically transformed my life to pursue my dream of becoming a Mountain Guide and so I moved to Torino to gain the experience and skills required to pass the rigors of my trade.

I'm an IFMGA Mountain Guide.

Join me! I can’t wait to share my greatest passion with enthusiasm and awareness in my favorite environments. After gaining experience and increasing my ability in each discipline, I participated in the IFMGA Aspirant Mountain Guides course and graduated in 2017. Nowadays, my greatest passion is to share with enthusiasm and awareness the most incredible environment: our Alps.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
