Follow me on a rock climbing trip planned just for you. Tell me your goals, available time and skill level and I’ll take you to the best route in the impressive Marmolada, Italian Dolomites for an unforgettable experience!

The Marmolada mountain, also known as “the Queen of the Dolomites”, is full of incredible features for rock climbing: it is the highest mountain in the region,  the only one with a permanent glacier and has the largest sheer wall in the Dolomites. The climbs are long but there are options to take the cable car down, if you are tired.

On this trip, we’ll be climbing the South Face, which has an altitude of 800 meters and a length of 3 kilometers. The access to the climbing routes is close to Rifugio Contrin; you could stay there the night before and/or after the trip if you want a full Alps experience. To access the routes we need to go by Ombretta pass to reach Marmolada di Penia.

So follow me on a unique climbing adventure made just for you in the stunning Marmolada.


About the guide

guide profile img

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.
