The Dolomites are a rock climbing paradise. And within this majestic mountain range, one peak stands out in particular: Becco di Mezzodi (2,603m).

Allow one of our certified guides to lead you on this fantastic 1-day rock climbing adventure to reach its summit via the normal route.

Becco di Mezzodi is a magnificent mountain located right above the Cortina d’Ampezzo, in the town of Belluno, Italy. This italian colossus has been immortalized in countless images and photographs. Even Faulkner wrote about it, for its unique shape and incomparable beauty.

Moreover, it lies in the Central Dolomites. Thus, once we reach its summit, we’ll be able to get the absolutely most breathtaking views of this mountain range.

Also, something really special happens around here. At midday in Cortina, the sun peaks right from above Becco di Mezzodi, irradiating everything with warmth. So locals call it “Midday Peak”.

The route to its summit normally begins at the Croda da Lago Refuge, near Cortina. Due to its unique location and geology, this place offers dazzling sceneries hard to compare. For instance, there is a fir forest at the entrance, leading into alpine meadows, and the stunning Lake Federa.

Our journey will be scenic, short and pleasant. As it does not require any technical knowledge. But, there are areas with some difficulty, ranging from II to III +. Then, the journey to the top will take around 3 hours, plus a couple more for the descent.

So, if you are up for this mountaineering adventure in Becco di Mezzodi, just send us a request. Let one of our guides take you to the summit of this impressive mountain.

Our guide Jacomo was incredible! He told us so much about the mountains and the area, about the fauna and the history of ferratas. We had an amazing time with him.

The trip itself and Refaelo the guide was great and they even gave a refund for my daughter who didn't participate at last due to sickness. But All the corresponding before the trip was bad. No details were given about the ferrata and not even about the meeting point and time. It took a lot of time to get answers for my questions and sometimes didn't get any.
