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:

About the 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.

Enrico è stato simpaticissimo e paziente con noi che eravamo un gruppo di principianti. Consiglio Punta Anna come prima esperienza di via ferrata ma anche per chi è più abituato penso sia un must. Consigliatissimo!!

10/10 would recommend! Our guide Enrico made this one of the best experiences of our trip. From helping with the more technical spots on the climb to the wealth of knowledge he provided about the Dolomiti, climbing and Italy in general. Enrico was so personable and an amazing photographer. Can not say enough good things about our experience!

Enrico Geremia was an excellent guide for our 1 day Rock Climbing adventure in Dolomites. He chose an excellent location, set up 2 top ropes for our large group to climb while he did several multi-pitch routes with between 1 - 4 climbers. Amazing location, great guiding thanks to Explore Share and Enrico.

As a group of 4 we went on a via ferrata adventure with Enrico and had an amazing time. Communication with Enrico was straightforward and he picked the perfect route: challenging but not too hard and consequently everybody in the group had a great time despite different levels of experience. It's very clear that Enrico is extremely competent and has a lot of experience. We always felt completely safe with him and he was very encouraging and fun to talk to. Looking forward to coming back. Highly recommended!
