Marija, an IFMGA mountain guide, takes you on a classic rock climbing route in the Dolomites: Cima Grande di Lavaredo, also known as Dibona Arete.
Tre Cime Di Lavaredo are three impressive rock towers at the heart of the Dolomites: Cima Ovest (western peak), Cima Grande (big peak) and Cima Piccola (little peak).
In fact, the north face sight of these three peaks has become a famous landmark of the Dolomite mountains.
On this rock climbing trip, I propose a route on the highest peak: Cima Grande. It’s a 500 m height IV+/IV grade route. It has a quite hard descend that usually demands some rappelling.
Our starting point will be Lavaredo Hut. Then, we’ll follow the trace of pioneer climbers like Angelo Dibona, who climbed this route in 1909. Because of him, the route is also known as the Dibona Arete.
Please contact me if you want to join me for this rock climbing adventure! It will be a pleasure to be your guide on this iconic spot of the Dolomites.

I was born in Kranj, Slovenia. I am a biology teacher and I also have been a professional alpinist for more than 30 years. Until now, I’ve reached 4 eight-thousanders around the world: Broad Peak, Cho Oyu, Dhaulagiri and Mount Everest.
In fact, I am the first (and still only) Slovenian female reaching ‘the roof of the world’. Together with my husband Andrej, we entered the Guinness Book of World Records as the first married couple to stand on Mt Everest.
Beyond the Himalayas, I climbed in Alaska, South America and Japan, among other places.
Sport climbing as well as competition and rock climbing have a very important place in my life and have taken me to many incredible and challenging places around the world.
