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.

I love the Dolomites and the many rock climbing opportunities in the region. So, if you are looking for more adventures, check out the trips I offer to the Rosengarten Group or the Vajolet Towers.




About the guide

guide profile img

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.
