One of the main things you’ll learn will be how to plan and tackle the classic routes in the Dolomites. Hence, I’ll take you to different types of pitches, so you can practice everything our lessons will cover.
On our first day, I will go over homogeneous climbing techniques as well as rope maneuvers. So that day we’ll depart early in the morning from Tuscany and head to Arco di Trento. Then, we’ll follow a path of iconic ascents on the famous walls of the Valle del Sarca. We will focus on safety of the rope and the homogenization of the different phrases. Also, we’ll cover techniques of progression. And in the evening, we’ll head to Val di Fassa, where we’ll stay for the night and rest. In Val di Fassa we’ll have different options for accommodation, from camping to hotels and shelters. You’ll get to choose the option you prefer!
Then, the following two days we’ll tackle alpine routes in the Dolomites. Every day we’ll live a different adventure. And each day we’ll dedicate two moments to the briefing and debriefing of each climb. These moments will be essential to analyze and forecast the events, to point out mistakes and suggest possible solutions to them. To do so, we’ll ascend a classic route on the Torri de Sella on our second day, depending on your skills. Finally, on our third day, we’ll head to the Ciavazes Wall.
Please note that a technical level of 5c / 6a is required from the first ropes, as well a good fitness level. If you have it and wish to join this adventure, please send me a request.
