Ice climbing

The sleeping water! This is how the most imaginative Italian ice climber romantically described the icefalls, meaning that in winter the water rests and becomes similar in shape to the rocks, offering icy handholds to climbers.

Thanks to the modern ice climbing equipment and the technical training provided by our Mountain Guides, you will discover this incredible discipline, challenging but immensely gratifying, in an almost surreal environment.

Thanks to its peculiar dolomitic morphology and its strategic position in the heart of the Dolomites, the Ampezzo Valley has a lot to offer to the enthusiast ice climbers, who can choose among a huge variety of different ice climbing sites.

The idea of hanging on to artificial anchors such as ice axes and crampons can frighten a beginner and excite an experienced ice climber, but a Dolomiti SkiRock Mountain Guide will always be by their side, ready to encourage and help the former and support the latter in the most difficult pitches.

Dolomiti SkiRock offers several itineraries, from the easier ones aimed at beginners to the more difficult and challenging excursions, always keeping as our primary concern the safety of our clients and accurately evaluating the ice and weather conditions.
