Climbing Cima Grande (Tre Cime di Lavaredo) in the Dolomites

Climbing Cima Grande (Tre Cime di Lavaredo) in the Dolomites | Italy

Join Martin, an IFMGA mountain guide, on this exciting Rock Climbing expedition to Cima Grande (Tre Cime di Lavaredo) in the Dolomites.

Not specified

1 Day

Jun, Jul, Aug




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.

Mountain Guide

I’m a mountain guide based in Bled, Slovenia. Climbing and alpinism are a big part of my life and I feel like mountains are my second home.

I was introduced to the mountains by my father, a mountain rescuer and a romantic alpinist. He made sure that I don’t see the mountains only as a sports playground but also as a place where a person can enjoy and get to know himself better.

Living in the heart of the Slovenian Alps gave me a chance to develop all disciplines of alpinism: hard rock climbing and wild ridges in the summer, sketchy mixed climbing and ski touring in the winter. I am fortunate that climbing took me on expeditions all over the world, from Patagonia to Himalayas. Since being on the higher ground is my second home, becoming a mountain guide came naturally.

As a mountain guide I want to share my passion for mountains in a respectful and friendly way. What drives me is bringing the beauty of higher mountains and alpinism closer to people who want to enjoy higher peaks but need safe guiding.

What people are saying about Martin



Every thing was okay Perfect professional guide ANDREJ, very good dates choosen with perfect weather conditions !!



We had an amazing time. Andrej is such a good guide, he has so much experience, we learnt a lot from him! We also felt completely safe even on those parts of the route which were a bit more difficult. The route itself is great for aspiring climbers. We had no climbing experience and felt it was perfect - you do climb the whole of the North face and there is almost no walking so you definitely get a good taste of alpine climbing but it is not too technical. It took us a long time, longer than expected, and we ended up staying in a mountain hut overnight and walking back the next day. Definitely do it but if you want to go the summit it might be better to book the two day trip as it a very long climb indeed (it took us 15 hours to get to the summit) - but of course totally worth it and the views are spectacular!



Brilliant trip we didn't do what we planned the eiger Because of the weather but he made every effort to make sure we did something else. We did the matterhorn and it was a brilliant trip guided really well, loads of knowledge. Thank you very much



Martin is a complete professional on and off the mountain. Always willing to share insights and knowledge about alpinism and climbing and made me feel comfortable and safe at all times. Whenever I had questions before the climb he would always be quick to answer with all the relevant information. The summit attempt of the Matterhorn was a success and Martin brought joy, knowledge and energy throughout the entire process.



Martin Zumer is an incredibly skilled climber who successfully guided me to the top of the Matterhorn. I felt safe with him for the entire trip, and I developed confidence in my own personal climbing abilities with his guidance. It was a lot of fun to climb with him and learn from him, and I would highly recommend him as a guide any day.
