The Dolomites, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, are a spectacular range of long, challenging, limestone peaks that will keep you buzzing for days. The mountain range offers not only some extreme, big wall routes for advanced climbers, but also extensive beginner routes for an enjoyable experience of height and exposure.


The mountain ranges in the Dolomites have been voted some of the best in the world for their easy access, and the ability to summit these spectacular routes within one day without having to camp on the rock or in a mountain hut. Instead, you can start early and then finish before evening to look back and see the monster that you've climbed.


Cortina d’Ampezzo is the classic spot to go to. There are plenty of crags around and all the famous areas like the Cima Towers are nearby. We think your main aim when going to the Dolomites should be climbing the bigger routes. Regardless of whether you are a beginner or advanced climber, there are multi-pitch routes for all abilities and experience levels.


Besides the endless number of longer routes on all the mountains, areas for single pitch sport climbing are vast and varied. Many are short walk-ins and most offer some spectacular views. Some of the best crags are: Val Rienza, which overlooks the Tres Cima, Crépe de Oucèra Alta, Cinque Torri, Sasso di Stria, South Face of the Piccolo Lagazuoi, Crepo Longo, Landro, Val Rienza, San Bodo.


The Dolomites are also famous for their long, technical via ferrata routes which take you on a exciting adventure every time. Magnificent scenery will accompany you through, for example, swinging bridges and small, exposed ladders. A via ferrata is a great way to go and have some fun as a group - and make the most of some fantastic photo opportunities.


Weather & Climate in the Dolomites

As part of the Alps you can expect cold and rainy winters. However, during the summer months, this is the ideal location to climb with a t-shirt on in hot and sunny crags with cool breezes blowing through the valleys. The best time to go to the Dolomites is therefore between July and September. Remember this is still the Alps, so the weather can be unpredictable and it's worth coming prepared with waterproofs


Accommodation in the Dolomites

You will be based in or near Cortina d’Ampezzo. Depending on your preference and budget we can arrange accommodation for you in a hotel, self-catering apartment, or alpine hut.


Trips to the Dolomites are on request only
