The Dolomites are a massive mountain range and alpine mecca located in northeast Italy. Visiting the Dolomites can be overwhelming due to its sheer size and reputation for loose rock, sparse protection, and complex descents. This guide provides everything you will need for your first trip. The guide focuses on the Western Dolomites in a zone called Val Gardena. Included are two small sport zones, two Via Ferratas, and 10 full alpine routes. The alpine routes include detailed photos of every pitch, descent beta with photos, and GPS enabled maps. Documentation of the alpine routes totals 82 pitches, over 8,000 feet of climbing, and over 300 beta photos. Every route was climbed by the authors at least once and most were climbed two or three times. The routes chosen were selected from a list of over 60 routes the authors climbed.
