Actualizado: 14 abr 2023

If you're looking for an adventure-filled trip that will leave you feeling accomplished and awed by nature's beauty, then look no further than Italy's Dolomites. My climbing trip to Italy in October of 2021 was a once-in-a-lifetime experience that I'll never forget.

After six months of intense training, my girlfriend/partner and I set off on our journey to Cortina di Ampezzo, the picturesque town nestled in the heart of the Dolomites. We chose Cortina as our base camp because of its proximity to some of the most awe-inspiring peaks and climbing routes in the area.

Our first climb was the Via Ferrata Punta Anna, a stunning and challenging route that offered breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains. This via ferrata was not for the faint of heart, but the experience was worth every second of the climb. The route led us through steep and narrow ridges, past waterfalls, and up to the summit of Punta Anna, where we were greeted by an incredible panoramic view of the surrounding mountains.

Next up was the multi-pitch climb of Quarta Bassa, a route that tested our endurance and skill as we climbed through the rocky terrain. The climb was challenging, but the reward was a spectacular view from the summit that made all the hard work worth it.

Finally, the highlight of our trip was the alpine climb up Cima Grande di Lavaredo, one of the most iconic peaks in the Dolomites. The climb was an epic adventure that involved glacier crossings, steep pitches, and

breathtaking views at every turn. The summit of Cima Grande di Lavaredo was an unforgettable experience that left us feeling exhilarated and accomplished.

Throughout our trip, we stayed in Cortina di Ampezzo, a charming town that offered a variety of restaurants, cafes, and bars to relax and unwind after a long day of climbing.

The town's vibrant culture and stunning natural surroundings made for a perfect backdrop to our adventure.

Overall, our climbing trip to Italy was an incredible experience that pushed us both physically and mentally. It was a chance to challenge ourselves and see some of the most stunning natural landscapes that Italy has to offer. If you're looking for an adventure that will leave you feeling accomplished and inspired, then the Dolomites should definitely be at the top of your list.
