The Tre Cime di Lavaredo are undoubtedly the symbol of the Dolomites, so much so that the UNESCO Dolomites logo also is based from them. Of the three main peaks, the Cima Grande di Lavaredo is the highest and almost doesn’t reach the fateful 3,000 m (2,999 m to be precise!).
Despite its large size, the normal ascent route is not particularly difficult but extremely fascinating. Clibed the first time on 21 August 1869 by Paul Grohmann, Franz Innerkofler and Peter Salcher, it follows the folds of the wall, linking the areas with lesser difficulties.
The route is beautiful and very logical, following ramps and gullies, always looking for the easiest areas to climb.
The descent is along the ascent route, alternating between climbing and rope-secured descents.
A very classic and repeated ascent, for those who want to go a little further than the via ferrata and want to experience the thrill of seeing the Dolomites from a panoramic balcony of incredible beauty.
If you have already climbed some difficult via ferrata in the Dolomites or in the Alps with ease and surefootedness, the Cima Grande di Lavaredo is within your reach: believe me!

What you need to know:
  • The minimum age should not be seen as a rigid parameter, but rather as a rough indication that will obviously depend on the technical skills, experience and level of training of the participants. If you feel that you or a member of your group would be able to take part in the excursion if your age were lower, please contact me directly at info@giovanni-orlando.it or call +39 328 83 15 601. In this case it is compulsory to contact the guide before registering for the activity.
  • The maximum number of persons indicated must be intended for a single guide. In the case of larger groups, one or more mountain guides will be used, in accordance with the maximum ratio indicated on the activity sheet. In this case, please send an e-mail to info@giovanni-orlando.it or call +39 328 83 15 601.
  • It is imperative that participants follow the instructions of the mountain guide before and during the activities and respect any changes to the chosen programme in order to ensure their safety.
  • Fees for facilities, transfers and accommodation are subject to change at the discretion of the operator (external to my company) and are not included in the price of the activity unless otherwise stated.
  • The fares shown in the ‘The fare does not include’ section are indicative and may vary.
  • For all itineraries and activities, the guide reserves the right to make changes according to conditions (weather, accessibility, refuges) and the physical condition of the participants.
  • The times indicated for carrying out the activities are subject to variations due to weather conditions and the physical state of the area (snowfall, terrain conditions, etc.) and necessarily depend on the opening and closing dates of the ski lifts, which are set seasonally/annually by the ski lift operators and are therefore in no way attributable to the mountain guide.
  • Minors under the age of 18, if unaccompanied, require a parental or guardian waiver to be given to the guide prior to the excursion.
