WHAT CLIMBING IS LIKE:
The Dolomites are truly a dream destination for climbing of all difficulties and styles. With incredibly varied terrain, from lush alpine valleys to stunning limestone peaks, there is a lifetime of climbing opportunities. Thousands of sport climbs scattered across dozens of cliffs offer everything from beautiful, easy warm-up slabs to tufa pinching endurance tests of the highest level. Add some of the best traditional climbing anywhere and sublime alpine boulder fields and you have a haven for climbing. The Dolomites are certainly one of the crown jewels of climbing in Europe.
