Have you ever tried ice climbing? If not, this is your chance! Join me for a 1,2 or 3-day course in the Dolomites and acquire the basic skills of this amazing sport!

Ice climbing gives you an incredible feeling of power, and can sometimes be even easier than rock climbing. The Dolomite Mountains, in northeastern Italy, offer some perfect areas to step into this activity. I will take you to the best frozen walls of the Fassa Valley (Trentino) and the Serrai of Sottoguda (Belluno).

At first, in Fassa Valley, we’ll practice how to use the equipment properly (axes and crampons), ice climbing techniques, and how to recognize different kinds of ice. Then we will try some fun single pitch routes in the Sottoguda area.

For this course you only need some rock climbing experience (it’s ok if you are a beginner). You will also need a good fitness level. Of course, I will be there to help and guide you on the way!

So, if you want to learn the basics of ice climbing in the Dolomites, please contact me for this introductory course. Trust me, if you like thrilling activities, you will love this sport!

And if you are a woman who wants to start with an easy rock climbing outing, check out my Sarca Valley program for women.

About the guide

I was born in Bozen and I have been living all my life long in Fassa Valley, Dolomites. That's why my native language is ladin, a reto-romanic language spoken around Sella.

My big passion besides traveling is mountains and guiding because I love to show the people the beauty of the mountains.

I was a member of the Italian National Alpine Ski from 1990 to 1997 when I became Ski Instructor. In 2009

I became an IFMAG Mountain guide. I guide in the Dolomites, Sarca valley, Sizialian vulcanoes, Ortles Cevedale area, and Sardinia.
