Climbing in Val Gardena and in the Dolomites takes place from June to October. Mauro Bernardi is of course also available for outings outside the organized program and on any mountain terrain. The organizing mountain guide, in the absence of his availability, avails himself of the collaboration of other guides.
The via ferratas are routes equipped with metal ropes, ladders and bridges, where people can secure themselves with rope clips, a sink and two carabiners.
Built in the early 1900s by mountain enthusiasts, they were intended to make it easier to pass steep walls, allowing them to reach the summit even for those who were not experienced and skilled climbers. During the First World War, the via ferratas became indispensable for the supply and transport of war material.
They were then subsequently taken up and enhanced by combining historical tradition and modernity with a recognized activity. A sporting and mountaineering gesture, the via ferratas have thus become an almost obligatory passage for the encounter with the real mountain and climbing.

A good mountaineering school brings the necessary fruits to move in the mountains, compared to the car license to drive on the roads. We mountain guides have learned about the experiences and secrets of our predecessors, which we in turn try to convey.
The courses are suitable for beginners, following a didactic logic based on personal preparation. You will learn the technique of climbing and insurance in via ferrata and roped, through the various levels of difficulty.
Lessons will be held outdoors and in the field with theoretical interventions. If you want to go to the mountains, entrust yourself to those who know it, it will be an enrichment to your knowledge.

Climbing in Val Gardena was born with the conquest of the surrounding peaks; the Sassolungo was climbed for the first time in 1869. From these pioneers and explorers of the vertical derives the definition of mountaineering and mountaineers: a complex and articulated activity with purely historical nuances.
The desire to climb and reach the summit, which has always been fascinating for man, led climbing to a development consistent with the times, acquiring a particular physiognomy with the introduction of the Welzenbach (1926) and subsequent opening to the 'high, to now be practiced with enthusiasm and safety by thousands of enthusiasts. A "fascinating art" that introduces us to the interiority of the mountain, giving us authentic and genuine intoxication, expanding the perspectives of our horizons.

Conquest of peaks
... on all peaks of Dolomites
The highest peaks of the Dolomites are just over three thousand meters high, above all the Marmolada with its 3344 m. Reaching one of these peaks is tiring and involves some training, but the beauty and charm of the organizational preparation, the discovery of the route, the panoramic perspectives and the satisfaction of having made it, leave great emotions.
By popular demand I propose these goals: Sassolungo (3181 m), Cima Grande di Lavaredo (2999 m) Marmolada (3344 m), Catinaccio (2981 m), Tofana di Rozzes (3225 m), Punta Grohmann (3126 m), Cinque Dita (2996 m), Grande Fermeda (2873 m)

Arco - Lake Garda
There is no better place to climb in spring and autumn than the Sarca Valley. Thanks to the mild and mild climate of these periods, in recent years Arco has become an international meeting point for climbers, who find here the most beautiful sport climbing cliffs, alpine climbing routes of all levels and a great choice of via ferata.
If you have never climbed so far and want to start, if you want to prepare yourself adequately for the following season or if you simply want to get to know this area, I am happy to host you and offer you the logistic base for weekend internships (two days even midweek).

As an alternative to the Dolomites still covered with snow, I propose some wonderful places for climbing. One of these is in the National Park of Paklenica, considered the „sanctuary“ of Croatian climbing.
Rich in karst terrain and a deep canyon called "Velika Paklenica", it offers compact and unique rock. Strongly worked by the erosion of the water, it presents deep lines in some sharp cases, which distinguishes the place. From the underground shelter „Bunker di Tito“ (open to visitors), hundreds of routes run along the walls of the long gorge, with exhilarating climbing.

Located in Thessaly, in central-northern Greece, there are the so-called: "towers of meditation"; there are over 160, excluding those conquered by the Orthodox monks in 1200, where the ancient monasteries are still erected today. These towers, with their soft and shaped shapes, reach up to 300 m in altitude, offering an original climbing on a solid merle conglomerate.
The air that one breathes here is mystical and climbing reconciles and blends with the peculiarity of the place.

The vast territory of Bohemia of the '500 is now located, divided between the Czech Republic and the former East Germany. A few steps from this border and in the German plains, the great and navigable Elbe river winds among castles and fortresses, lapped by different groups of beautiful rock towers:
we are in the region of Saxony (Sächsische Schweiz) 20 km from the so-called "German Florence" the fascinating city of Dresden. in the Bohemian area there are over 6000 sandstone towers, while in Saxony, the site of this proposal, we have only 1200 available ... Climbing on the "sand" is a unique experience, where history tells us that here free climbing was born reaching the seventh grade already in 1920!

Freeride and ski tours
During the winter and at high altitude the Dolomites become inaccessible and slippery, yet there is a wonderful means of skiing, which makes them spectacular and welcoming.
The growing practice of these activities, the off-piste and ski mountaineering, paves the way to a new world once unthinkable.
With today's technology and modern equipment you can wander and descend a little everywhere, between classic and new scenarios. The magic of fresh snow, the ease of transfers, the silence and the quiet of the hidden valleys, make you feel and love this beautiful nature in such a different way.
