This Rock Climbing expedition to Cima Piccola (Tre Cime di Lavaredo) will take you through one of the most spectacular approaches in the Dolomites!

There’s no need to explain how important the Dolomites are in the rock climbing and mountaineering world. We are talking about one of the most classic walls in Europe and, probably, in the world.

And the Cima Piccola, is one of the most amazing towers among this beautiful place. 

With a 300 meters approach, it will give you the full pleasure of what it is to climb through these walls. We’ll start this 4 hours expedition from the Lavaredo hut, that is straight under the J wall. The first part will take us between Veliko and Malo Cino. Then we’ll finish the job climbing the final tower.

So request to book this trip, and we’ll start putting together this Rock Climbing Cima Piccola expedition in the Dolomites. We’ll put together a program tailored to your goals and expectations!

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.
