Are you ready to climb one of the most famous walls in Europe? Then join me on this expedition and get to the summit of the Dolomites!

The Dolomites are one of the most renowned mountain ranges in the World. Located in the northeast of Italy they were the birthplace of today’s rock climbing, and where the first route of some of the most impressibve mountaineers of all times.

So my plan is to take you up the elegante line known as the Ribona Arete. We’ll go through the north face of the mountain range, heading up to the highest of the Three Cimas, which are the rock towers located close to the Italian Cortina.

This grade  IV+/IV ascension is a short approach. We’ll climb 500 meters starting from the Lavaredo Hut and going up to the south of the Tre Cima de Lavaredo. Then we’ll go down via the normal route, which is quite demanding and has occasional rappelling.

Does this rock climbing adventure in the Dolomites sounds interesting? Then please send me a request and let’s plan your climbing expedition together.

About the guide

guide profile img

I was born in Kranj (Slovenia), and since I was a child the mountains have been my passion. I graduated in Sports at Ljubljana University and started an alpine career as a member of the Kranj Alpine Club.

In 1977, I climbed my first eight-thousander: it was a new route on Gasherbrum I. Some years later, a partner and I became the first Slovenians to ascend Mt Everest, also on a new route.

In fact, I’ve been at the top of Everest twice. The second time, I reached the summit with my wife Marija, and we were the first married couple achieving that.

Throughout my alpine career, I took part and even lead more than 20 expeditions in the Nepalese Himalayas. There, I climbed more than six peaks over eight thousand meters: two of them on new routes and three using pure alpine style. I also climbed in Patagonia, Pamir, USA, Caucasus and Scotland.

However, my major success was climbing a new route on Kangchenjunga, in alpine style and together with climber Marko Prezelj. After this, we won the prestigious mountaineering award Piolet d’Or.

I am a mountain guide since 1982 and I obtained my IFMGA license in 1997. I am also an instructor at the Slovenian Mountain Guide Association (SMGA).

I still live in Kranj with my wife and the youngest of our three children.
