Topic Author's Original Post - Jun 14, 2010 - 09:42am PT
Hi, I'm new here...
I apologize for my English, I know it's not the best :-)
I'm a mountain guide, I was born in a wonderful place, Cortina di Ampezzo, where I live and work to this day. I'm posting some photos of the Dolomites mountais, just to promote my area: I think that anyone who loves climbing and nature will find something here that is different to other mountains areas in the world. If you are thinking about a trip to the Dolomites, you can find some useful tips surfing my website
Ciao!

Thanks for the great photos that remind me of my experiences in the Dolomites in 1963 and 1964!

I climbed the Spigolo Fiames-Punta Fiames, via Demuth-Lichtenegger-Peringer on the Cima Ovest, and the Scarf Arete on the Cima della Madonna as some of the better routes. Also a lot of things in the Cinque Torre.

Thanks for posting the photos. That whole area is indeed spectacular! Unfortunately, we only hiked when we were there, but I will get back there to climb someday.
Some of my roots are not too far from Cortina. My grandparents on my father's side were from a tiny village called Laggio di Cadore.

Great photos! Spent a week in Castle Rotto 2002. I would live in Northern Italy if I could afford it. It is just spectacular.

drunkfox-are you related to Donini?

You know, the Dolomites, Italy and all......

Cima Grande, Marmolada-Comici, Cassin.......

Seriously, spectacular photos and a place I dreamed about as a kid. The vertical limestone, the names, the history and the romance of the day. Of all the places I dreamed about climbing the Dolomites were at the top of the list.

cheers

So many posts!
Jim E, unfortunately you did'nt find the best weather, and also ther is still some snow: I hope you enjoy your travel, anyway.
Frumy, I will post more photos. I tried to make a slideshow, but I was not able... On my website there is a nice photogallery!
phylp,I know Laggio and I have some relative there: her surname is Puppin.
Guido, you have an Italian name: I think you will visit the Dolomites soon :-)
Everybody: thanks for your posts.
Ciao, have a good climb!

I was in Longarone for the UIAA Safety Commission meeting and then spent the weekend in the Dolomites. So, unfortunately I did not have very much time for climbing. I did manage to get up a route on the Cima Piccola in very fine weather followed by an easy ferrata near Cortina the next day. Good fun and fine scenery.


edit: We did not climb the popular classic Spigollo Giallo but instead a horror show thing to the left that goes up the prominent flake.
