Marmolada, the Queen of the Dolomites, was one of the first via ferrata sites in this mountain range. I invite you to climb it through its gentle and beautiful west ridge. Although the itinerary does not present any particular technical difficulty, the glacial environment, the high altitude and the length of the climbing route make it a challenging adventure!

Our starting point will be preferably in Val di Fassa so we can meet up there the day before and check the necessary equipment.

I can also suggest some interesting lodging in the area such as the Oswald Hotel. There are many other nearby accommodations in Canazei di Fassa (Cristallo Hotel or the Gran Paradise Hotel). In Campitello di Fassa you can even stay in comfortable apartments.

We will do the whole ascent and descent from Alba to Marmolada summit in 1 day. Keep in mind it's a very long day, with 1800 meters gain, and we will start around 5am, so this option is only suitable if you are very fit.

This one day experience is a really complete program since we won’t only enjoy a via ferrata trip. We’ll start with a walk, going to the via ferrata and finally enjoy the amazing Marmolada summit! What’s more exciting is that you’ll be also teleported back to the First World War since that fighting took place right here.

I am happy to offer this full mountaineering and historical package in Marmolada. It’ll be a big pleasure for me if you join me. Send your request to book the trip!

And if you’d like to try a rock climbing adventure in the Dolomites, please check out this full day program in Val di Fassa.

Mountain Guide

Hi! I'm Renato, IFMGA guide from the Dolomites, and I work together with my colleagues Robert, Bruno, Patrick, Benedetta & Walter (German speaking). If I'm not available to guide you, one of them will take care of you.

I was born in 1961, I live in Campitello di Fassa, in the Dolomites, together with my family. I have two sons, one is a mountain guide, the other is a ski instructor. I am a certified mountain guide since 1982, an instructor of guides, alpine ski instructor and a Federal coach for ISEF.

Being in the mountains has always been my passion, guiding people, teaching them climbing, mountaineering... during the various seasons of the year. I very much enjoy drawing nice curves in fresh powder snow and discover the charm of the frozen waterfalls.

My curriculum and professional mountaineering is made of many ascents and some openings of routes in the Dolomites and the Alps. I climbed in Yosemite Valley (California), Ben Nevis (Scotland) and Norway, Greece, Spain and Sardinia. I did also several high altitude climbs like Mt Denali (Alaska), Ama Dablam (6828m), Cho Oyu (8201m), Manaslu (8163m), Shivling in India (6545m), Cotopaxi and Chimborazo in Ecuador (5897m and 6310m), Patagonia (Argentina).

Feel free to get in touch with me if you are coming in the Dolomites for skiing (alpine, freeride and ski touring), rock climbing, sport climbing and multi pitch climbing. It will be my pleasure to guide you here and let you discover my secret spots.
