Dolomite Mountains

1 Day

Jun - Sep




* Reach the summit of one of the most popular peaks in the Dolomites

* Discover unique war stories and the geological history of this famous range

* Enjoy an amazing climb along a certified local guide


Join me on this 1-day ascent to the Tofana di Rozes (3225m), in the heart of the Ampezzo Dolomites, and discover war stories, unique geology and the history of alpinism while climbing the most spectacular peak of the Tofane group.

The Tofana di Rozes three-edged giant pyramid shape and its high vertical south face make it one of the most popular peaks in the Dolomites range, and the most popular in the Tofane group. This massif is located west of Cortina d’Ampezzo, in the Veneto region.

From the center of Cortina d’Ampezzo, we will continue along the Falzarego Pass road, until we reach the entrance of the road that goes up to the Rifugio Dibona. From that point, we will continue along a former military road, for about 2 hours, to the Giussani Refuge (2580 m), passing through the ruins of the former Cantore Hut.

The route is a real geological journey into the history of the Dolomites and  the Tofane group in particular. In fact, it is not difficult to find here a Megalodonti, a fossil from the Dolomites depository period.

From the hut, we will climb towards the impressive Punta Marietta, following the well-traced path that leads to the Tre Dita and to the beginning of the Lipella ferrata. When we reach 2630 meters, at a crossroads, we will follow the trail signs with blue stamps which lead us to the normal ascent route to the summit.

Climbing on typically dolomitic terrain of debris and rocks, we will reach the ridge where the ferrata Lipella stands, at about 3027 m. From here we will climb up the ridge up to the steep detrital slope that soon leads to the summit, paying attention to possible snow remains. From the refuge, it is a 2.30 hour-climb to the summit.

The descent takes place by the same ascent route. The total climb, to the summit and down, will take us about 4 hours. The itinerary does not present objective difficulties, but requires experience and ability to evaluate the terrain conditions.  Also, in case of residual snow, specific equipment is needed to overcome the snowfields. 

If you want to climb this amazing summit in the Dolomites, just send me a request. Book your trip and join me on this great ascent to the spectacular Tofana di Rozes.

Mountain Guide

I was born and raised in the countryside, a perfect playground to develop a love for outdoors, and especially for the mountain.

I started to explore the mountains with my father, doing some hiking in the nearby Dolomites.
During the army time i was part of the athletes division for trail running and biathlon, and during rest period from the races i was part of the Army rescue team.
I became a climbing instructor (also teaching to the children) a lot of years ago, and now I am a certified UIMLA guide.
During the university time, I worked like a photographer and copywriter for some Italian outdoor sports magazines.
Work and leisure have taken me to many different countries like Nepal,Tibet,China and many other mountain ranges around the world, but the Dolomites remain at the first place in my heart! In the mountains I have ranged countless paths, and many rock and ice climbing routes and ski trips in the Alps.

In my life I have applied myself in various sports, like ski mountaineering, marathon and many others. In the last 10 years I have also done some Ironman races in full and over 20 of half distance.

When I'm not working in the mountains I stay in Trieste with my wife and my child. Trieste is a beautiful city by the Adriatic Sea, sourrounded by different wild landscapes to explore.
Since my arrival in Trieste I have been an active member of the Mountain Search and Rescue team as a technician.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
