105 sport climbing suggestions
There is no need to be an alpinist to enjoy rock in the Dolomites!
On the “most beautiful mountains in the world”, Unesco World Heritage Site, situated between the regions of Trentino–South Tyrol, Veneto and Friuli, there are hundreds of bolted crags for sports climbing, and there are 105 proposals we have chosen for you in this volume, the first and only book to describe the Dolomites in their territorial entirety.
From Val Gardena to Cortina d’Ampezzo passing across Val Badia and the Upper part of Val Pusteria, from the Valleys of Fiemme and Fassa to the Dolomites of the Friuli and Agordo area, from Primiero to Cadore, the wide selection described by the author has allowed the most deserving rock faces to be chosen from a tourist’s point of view, as well as some little gems which are not as popular: a guide book for climbers on the go but also for those who live in the Dolomites and climb all year round. Sports climbing is the best way to start enjoying the rock faces of the Dolomites, and to acquire a degree of confidence climbing them.
Not necessarily, but if in a short time you will be hanging hundreds of meters from the ground on an immense rock face, do not be surprised, it is a short step from crags to multi pitch.
Guido Colombetti born in 1980, was born and bred in South Tyrol where he still lives to this day and has become an avid sports climber in his local crags and not only. As well as living in the mountains, and making the most of snow and rock all year round thanks to his degree in Multimedia communications and his diploma as a “AMM Excursion Guide”, in between one pitch and another, he professionally deals with Internet and communications and collaborates with agencies all over the world organizing treks in what he calls “the world’s most beautiful mountains” better known as the Dolomites. For Versante Sud he has published SnowAlp in Trentino-Alto Adige (2012) and Alto Adige Falesie
