Dolomiti di Brenta

From the 3rd grade to the 8th grade everyone can find their own route in the Dolomites. But be careful: this is not sports climbing, ten quick draws will not be enough. You will need cams, nuts, cordelettes for the many rock tunnels and spikes found, you will also need pegs and a hammer. The rock faces are not marked with arrows which give a direction, there are no lines of bolts which lead you up the face. The climber himself must read the wall, find the ascent, protect his/her climb with nuts, cams and cordelettes.

The experience gained is extremely valuable!
