Description

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.

Mountain Guide

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. I work with other mountain guides in the Veneto area, such as Filippo, Massimo, and my brother Daniele. If I am unavailable on the date you are interested in coming climbing, skiing, or engaging in other activities with me, I can connect you with one of them.

3 stars Marmolada is due to weatherconditions. Lack of new snow. Enrico found good snow in parts of the glacier. 5 stars to him. Before we went up to the glacier, Enrico took us for a testride offpiste to see if we would be able to ski difficult conditions. Very good.

To be honest we are very disappointed. We signed up for the day of free ride on Marmolada but Enrico wisely said the snow conditions were not conducive for doing that. He offered to do other activities (specifically ski touring) but that is not what we paid for or signed up for, and did not want to do that. Since he offered “alternative activities” it appears we lose 100% of the cost per Explore-Share policy. This is extremely unfair. Enrico seemed like a good guy and probably a very good guide, but I would NOT recommend Explore Share to anyone! Terrible experience for an expensive day.

Geremia was great to have for my first time ice climbing. He went over all the basics and gave me tips on my climbing that really helped out. All of this in a beautiful location! Highly recommended!

Enrico was extremely knowledgeable of the area and was able to put us in great snow despite the lack of snowfall over the past few weeks. Wonderful day!
