Description

At the heart of the Dolomites, between the villages of Sottoguda and Malga Ciapela, Serrai di Sottoguda is the ideal destination in Italy for ice climbing. 

Serrai di Sottoguda is an amazing canyon at the base of the Marmolada, with huge rock walls. During winter, the gorge is covered by 5 kilometers of frozen waterfalls. This turns it into a paradise for ice climbers.

One of the highlights of this place is it has a wide variety of routes for every levels of difficulty. As a matter of fact, it’s suitable for those having their firsts experiences in ice climbing and also for the ones looking for more extreme and challenging routes.

In this trip, we are going to practice single pitch to multi-pitch ice climbing, reaching a 200 m height. At the same time, we will have the opportunity of enjoying a beautiful scenery.

The best period to visit Serrai di Sottoguda starts in December, when the icefalls start to form. It lasts until the end of March.

Please contact me if you are interested in this ice climbing adventure. I an IFMGA mountain guide based in the Dolomites, and will be glad to show you my favorite places in Serrai di Sottoguda.
