Enjoy breathtaking views and interesting terrain as we climb the Formenton via ferrata in the Dolomites mountain range.

Located around the vibrant alpine commune of Cortina d’Ampezzo, the via ferrata is surrounded by stunning scenery.

The traverse begins at the summit of Tofana di Mezzo. As we ascend its south face we gain access to the less visited Tofana di Denro. From here we descend its north ridge.

This is a nice and easy via ferrata, yet unique as it allows us to see Tofana di Mezzo and Tofana di Dentro, two giant mountains that tower higher than 3,000 meters.

Reserve your place to experience the stunning mountainside and climb the Formenton via ferrata to gain breathtaking views of Mezzo and Dentro, the giants of he Dolomites.

About the guide

Hi! I'm Renato, IFMGA guide from the Dolomites, and I work together with my colleagues Robert, Bruno, Patrick, Benedetta & Walter (German speaking). If I'm not available to guide you, one of them will take care of you.

I was born in 1961, I live in Campitello di Fassa, in the Dolomites, together with my family. I have two sons, one is a mountain guide, the other is a ski instructor. I am a certified mountain guide since 1982, an instructor of guides, alpine ski instructor and a Federal coach for ISEF.

Being in the mountains has always been my passion, guiding people, teaching them climbing, mountaineering... during the various seasons of the year. I very much enjoy drawing nice curves in fresh powder snow and discover the charm of the frozen waterfalls.

My curriculum and professional mountaineering is made of many ascents and some openings of routes in the Dolomites and the Alps. I climbed in Yosemite Valley (California), Ben Nevis (Scotland) and Norway, Greece, Spain and Sardinia. I did also several high altitude climbs like Mt Denali (Alaska), Ama Dablam (6828m), Cho Oyu (8201m), Manaslu (8163m), Shivling in India (6545m), Cotopaxi and Chimborazo in Ecuador (5897m and 6310m), Patagonia (Argentina).

Feel free to get in touch with me if you are coming in the Dolomites for skiing (alpine, freeride and ski touring), rock climbing, sport climbing and multi pitch climbing. It will be my pleasure to guide you here and let you discover my secret spots.

Me and my wife and 16 years old son had a wonderful day with our guide Etienne. Our first plan was to go via Ferrara to del Formenton in Cortina. Etienne suggested that we would go to another place near Passo Falzarego. We had an excellent trip with a excellent guide. It was very nice that Etienne could speak English. If I come back to Dolomites for off piste skiing, I will definitely contact him.
