The Sassolungo peak (3,181m) is a magnificent mountain in the Dolomites of Italy. This peak is renowned for the challenge it presents in reaching the summit. However, the purpose of this trip is not an arduous trek to the top that mountain. Instead, we will be spending a day climbing on the rocks and ice of a nearby peak, the Innerkofler Tower, which is also near the Passo Sella.
Anytime you have the opportunity to go ice climbing, you know you’re in for a thrilling experience. The rush of slowly making your way up a frozen sheet of solid ice is as exciting as it comes. Also, because this trip takes place near the great Sassolungo peak in the Dolomites, you will have no shortage of fantastic views either.
This trip will present some challenges, as we will be climbing nearly 450 metres of ice and rock. As a result, participants should have some previous ice climbing experience. Participants should also be in good physical condition as well.
Over the course of the climb, we will take a very popular route. Thus making sure you enjoy a comfortable ascent. However, there is a possibility of variations depending on the conditions of the ice. Regardless, I will make sure you are properly guided so you can make the climb safely, while also having a great time.
With Sassolungo looming nearby, as well as the rest of the stunning Dolomites, this ice and rock climbing trip makes for an unforgettable adventure. So if you would like to join me, just send me a request. I would be happy to guide you.
Would you like to take a course in order to improve your existing ice climbing skills, or attain new ones? If you do, I can lead you on this 3 day ice climbing course in the Serrai di Sottoguda gorge in the Dolomites.
I started my career as an aerospace engineer, my first passion and then became a full-time IFMGA mountain guide, my second passion, since 2013. Working as a mountain guide gratifies me a lot. I enjoy very much transmitting my knowledge about the mountains and its activities to my friends and clients. I’m based in the Dolomites where I have climbed most of the mountain surroundings us here, including “Via attraverso il Pesce” in Marmolada and “Captain sky-hook” in Civetta. I also enjoy a lot guiding in the rest of the Alps, ice climbing, ski touring, freeride skiing, rock climbing and mountaineering. Feel free to contact me if you want to live a great adventure in the Dolomites or anywhere else in the Alps, during the winter or the summer. It will be a great pleasure for me to guide you and allow you to reach your goal.
