Overview

Winter is approaching, temperatures are dropping, and rock walls are freezing into stunning waterfalls of ice. This can only mean one thing: Ice Climbing! Ice climbing is, without a doubt, the best alternative to rock climbing once winter sets in. The style and training are similar to that of rock climbing, but the thrill and adrenaline are multiplied!! In winter, Trentino offers some of the best conditions for ice climbing. There are numerous spots to practice this sport, each of which boasts unique conditions that can vary week by week. For this reason, Mapo Tapo relies on local experts to assess the best spots and deliver the best experience. Our certified local alpine guide Max will take you to some of the most renowned ice climbing destinations in the famous Brenta Dolomites.

The frozen Dolomiti di Brenta have established themselves as a jewel for 360° ice climbing

The frozen Dolomiti di Brenta have established themselves as a jewel for 360° ice climbing. Two are the reasons in particular: the extraordinarily suggestive place located at the foot of the north corner of the Crozzon di Brenta and the variety of routes that allows you to climb both on leaning waterfalls, suitable for beginners, and on tough dry tooling routes. So even though Val Brenta is now considered a real ice gym, it is necessary to have a certain mountaineering experience to tackle the present lines. But don’t worry about that! Max, one of the first discoverers of the ice climbing potential of the place is our UIAGM certified guide.
