If you want to get started in the exciting world of ice climbing, or you are looking to improve your skills, this journey in Sappada ice falls is just for you.
Sappada is a small village in the province of Belluno, in Northern Italy. It stands in the border between Italy and Austria, and is part of the Dolomites.
It’s a beautiful alpine valley of green hills, coniferous forests, waterfalls and lagoons.
Mount Peralba (2694 m), Pic Cjadenis (2490 m) and Mount Lastroni (2450 m), are among the highest peaks in the area.
Sappada is a reference point for ice climbers, as it offers a wide variety of ice falls. In fact, it has three areas with several routes from road-side single pitches, to 5-6 pitch routes high up in the mountains.
I strongly recommend this place for those who want to start ice climbing activity, as it has easy multi-pitch routes until 200 m. Nevertheless, we can design personalized programes for all levels, according to your wishes and expectations.
During this trip, you will use a basic ice climbing equipment, like harness, helmet, crampons and ice axes. In fact, you can rent everything there.
Please contact me if you want more information about this climbing trip in Sapadda. It will be a pleasure for me to share this amazing experience with you!
You may choose between the villages of Caprile, Alleghe or Malga Ciapela.
You will need ice climbing equipment (harness, helmet, crampons, ice axes). You can rent these for around 10 EUR per day. You will also need a car to reach the climbing spots (but no lift passes or train tickets will be necessary).
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.
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures!
