Don Quixote route (Marmolada) rock climbing in the Dolomites

Enrico, an IFMGA-UAIGM-certified mountain guide, wants to take on this guided rock climbing experience in the Dolomites on Marmolada's Don Quixote Route!

Not specified

1 Day

Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep, Oct




The Don Quixote is one of the most famous and easiest routes on Marmolada's (3.343 meters) south wall. Located in northeastern Italy, Marmolada is the highest mountain of the Dolomites!

The route is for the most part about IV+ level with some pitches of V/V+ and is about 700 meters long. 

Keep in mind that the approach is about 1000 meters and that the climb can be done in one day but all participants must be in great physical shape and must know how to climb fast on the easy parts we will encounter.

If you want to do the Don Quixote Route in two days, we will spend the night in the beautiful Falier hut.

This opportunity is definitely not for beginners. The trip is perfect for advanced rock climbers who wish to learn more. Also, remember that being in great physical shape is mandatory.

If you want to join me on this unique climbing adventure in the Dolomites, request to book this trip!

If you wish to do a less challenging rock climbing route in the beautiful Dolomites, you can also join me on this Dibona Route (Dolomites) guided rock climbing.

Mountain Guide

I started my career as an aerospace engineer, my first passion and then became a full-time IFMGA mountain guide, my second passion, since 2013. Working as a mountain guide gratifies me a lot. I enjoy very much transmitting my knowledge about the mountains and its activities to my friends and clients.

I’m based in the Dolomites where I have climbed most of the mountain surroundings us here, including “Via attraverso il Pesce” in Marmolada and “Captain sky-hook” in Civetta. I also enjoy a lot guiding in the rest of the Alps, ice climbing, ski touring, freeride skiing, rock climbing and mountaineering.

Feel free to contact me if you want to live a great adventure in the Dolomites or anywhere else in the Alps, during the winter or the summer. It will be a great pleasure for me to guide you and allow you to reach your goal. I work with other mountain guides in the Veneto area, such as Filippo, Massimo, and my brother Daniele. If I am unavailable on the date you are interested in coming climbing, skiing, or engaging in other activities with me, I can connect you with one of them.

What people are saying about Enrico & Team



It was a pretty awesome experience.  If you are ever in the Dolomites and need a guide, don't hesitate to look up Enrico.  Though this was my first guided experience, I highly recommend him.



Had a great day with Enrico. We were a group of 2 snowboarders and a skier. Enrico was very patient with us. Will return again.



If I could give Enrico more that five stars, I would! He is a great guide and patient teacher. He tailored instruction to my level and the goals that I had for the trip. He gave me specific drills to practice the foot work and ice tool placement that I needed to work on. He was encouraging and pushed me without making me uncomfortable or scared. He is a great climber with a lot of knowledge but he makes it easy to understand. I would recommend him to anyone. Thanks for the great trip!



Wonderful experience! Felt safe, had a lot of fun and will definitely be back to do more ice climbing. Thank you!



Great trip! Enrico planned it perfectly and had a ton of info about the area. Highly recommend!
