Do you want to learn the basics or improve your rock climbing skills? Then join me! Let’s go to the Adel Climbing Gym, in northern Italy, for a special indoor course for beginners.

The Dolomite Mountains are famous for their mountaineering, skiing and outdoor climbing options. However, in this region, we can also find modern and well-equipped gyms where you can practice rock climbing regardless of the weather.

The Adel Climbing Gym is located in Campitello di Fassa, next to the Col Rodella lift station. Its name is a tribute to four rescuers who died in an avalanche at Val Lasties, in 2009: Alessandro Dantone, Diego Perathoner, Erwin Riz and Luca Prinoth.

With brand new and innovative structures, this spot offers amazing opportunities for indoor climbing and bouldering. On this course we will work on equipment usage, security advice and technical movements! This course is suitable for anyone: you don’t need previous rock climbing experience.

So, if you want to practice rock climbing in a safe manner, please get in touch with me. Let’s discover the thrilling walls of the Adel Climbing Gym, in Campitello di Fassa, Italy!

I can also take you to the biggest indoor climbing spot in Italy, Salewa Cube. Check it out here.

About the Guide


I was born and raised in Campitello, in Val di Fassa. I am a ski instructor and mountain guide.
My parents have always practiced mountaineering, both for leisure and business, and the apple doesn't fall far from the tree! Skiing and climbing were my favourite activities growing up.
As the years went by, I became more and more skilled and experienced under the watch of my father, both in techniques and safety measures. I learned the craft of mountain guide and ski instructor from him, since when his clients or students agreed, I would join them in the mountain.
But the true passion started when I moved to Tione for my studies.
I became ski instructor at 19 and mountain guide at 21.

What People are Saying about Etienne Bernard


This was our first time doing via ferrata and to be honest I was a bit worried as I\'ve never done something like this before. We\'ve been lead by Ethienne who was very knowledgeable, very kind and very helpful, sharing information and skills to help us do it the right way. The climb was steep, but they do different ones and I can honestly say this was one of the best things I have ever done! I would definately recommend this experience to anyone. We\'ve quickly realised on the day there was no way we could have done this on our own and the support and encouragement and knowledge sharing was everything we have hoped for!

Top of the world, literally!! We enjoyed our experience from start to end to say the least. Etienne was very personable, experienced and tailored our climb for the group. We felt safe and comfortable with our guide as he was a certified mountain guide and knows the Dolomites like the back of his hand. This was the highlight of our trip! Thank you!
