Description

The imposing gigantic rock of Monte Pelmo rises abruptly from the green meadows in the Belluno region.

Measuring 3,168 meters above sea level, Monte Pelmo is one of the highest peaks in the entire alpine mountain chain of the Dolomites.

The huge block consists of climbing rocks and pathways that wind up the steep slopes.

Because of its striking rise, it takes approximately 2 days to fully experience and appreciate the wild landscapes.

Using the normal route as our objective, you’ll discover the flourishing vegetation, rugged formations and breathtaking scenery.

Once conquering the summit at 3,168 meters above sea level, you’ll be welcomed by stunning panoramic views of the Dolomite mountain range.

The normal route is long and features interest and beauty, yet is not technically difficult or demanding.

Beginning in the vast central basin that surrounds the mountain, we’ll pass the iconic Ball ledge before ascending all the way to the crested summit, culminating in a truly raw and wild victory over nature.

About the guide

I was born in the plain in 1983, but as often happens to those who were born there, I have always loved the mountains. I was three years old when I wore my first skis, not knowing that this would become my strongest passion ... Skiing, walking, climbing: it is since I was a child that I go to the mountains, first with my parents and my grandfather and then with my friends.

The degree in forestry science was only the logical consequence of this passion, as well as the beautiful summers spent managing the refuge Capanna Punta Penia in Marmolada (the highest refuge in the Dolomites, on top of the highest mountain in the Dolomites!), which I call "the bus without wheels" and all over the Dolomites!
The last step (for now...) was to become a Mountain Guide, to let you experience what the mountain transmits to me!
… and to show you the famous " bus without wheels”

Giovanni is a wonderful guide, with perfect knowledge of the route and the technical aspects of the climb. Would highly recommend Giovanni as a guide for the Dolomites and elsewhere.

Giovanni was an exceptionally wonderful guide! Our family spent the day with him climbing in Cinque Torri. He was incredibly patient with our children, and was able to find routes that we all enjoyed climbing. We loved every minute of the day and would recommend this trip to any family interested in doing some sport climbing near Cortina/Cinque Torri.
