Description

Located west of the Sella Pass and the Sella group, the Sassolungo group is a magnificent collection of peaks. They are a wonder to gaze upon. However, they are even more impressive when you get the chance to climb them. And on this trip, you will get to climb on the beautiful walls of those peaks.

Lasting for one, or several days if you wish, this trip will give you the chance to explore, enjoy and climb on a number of routes in The Sassolungo group. Due to the size of the Sassolungo group, the variety of routes to choose from is extensive. For example, you can choose to climb the longer, more challenging routes of the north and northeast faces. Or, you can choose the more accessible and varied routes on the south and west face. The choice is entirely up to you. And I will see to it that no matter which routes you choose that you are properly and safely guided the whole time.

The views you will get to enjoy during this trip are unbelievable. Not only will you get to see the many summits of the Sussolungo group, including the Grohmannspitze, the Fuenffingerspitze and the Langkofelspitze, but you will also get to see the beauty of the nearby Sella Pass as well.

It is important that participants on this trip are in good physical condition. Furthermore, for those who wish to take on the more challenging routes, you should have the necessary experience to do so.

Come to the Sassolungo group and enjoy some of the best climbing routes in the Dolomites. I know you’ll have an amazing time. To join me, just send a request.

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.
