Description

Why not joining me for several hours (3 to 5) of climbing on the Via Ferrata of Formenton in the area of Cortina d'Ampezzo in the Dolomites mountain range. 

Formenton is a really nice and easy via ferrata. It's kind of unique because it allows us to see Tofana di Mezzo and Tofana di Dentro (2 mountains higher than 3000 meters) with a beautiful landscape all around the Dolomites, mainly on the north side.

I invite you to a nice hike on a kind of ridge with the via ferrata to help us on the more difficult rock pass. Besides, it is a unique place to see some rest of the first world war.

I usually recommend this via ferrata because :

  • The views are breathtaking;

  • The terrain is very interesting. In fact, it allow us to walk on a ridge with amazing landscapes on both sides;

  • We have the chance to admire to famous peaks of the Dolomites mountain range.

During this trip, we will have a positive altitude gain of 250 meters.

Please contact me if you come in the Dolomites with your friends or with your family. I'll be happy to spend a good time climbing a secured route!

If you look for alternatives or if you want to combine Via Ferrata del Formenton with some others, here are 3 more that I particularly like to do with my friends and clients:

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!
