I'm gonna be in Florence for the winter and am interested in doing some alpine climbing in the dolomites and the italian alps. I'd also love to do some rock climbing too though. Am looking for partners. Anyone got ideas?

Hi!
May be winter isn't the best season to done any alpine climb in the Dolomitis because there's to much snow. A better idea is to go backcountry ski or ice climbing.
I live in the middle of the Dolomitis and I love backcounty ski and when I have time I like to do it and sometimes ice climbing as well (but I'm not so good).
Do go climb Arco (on top of Garda lake) is on of the best climbing spot where you can climb all the year around, from the one-pitch sportclimb til over 15pitches alpine climb.
I'm very busy in winter but if you like may be we can ski or climb together.
Ciao ciao
Matteo

Climbing at the Garde Lake is indeed very beautiful ! Although in summer time corwded I like Nago very much. Never been in winter there.

My wife and I spent 2 weeks doing via ferratas in the Cortina and Arco areas this past September. We are going back next summer for a week of ferratas and a week of trad. You are in for a real treat! Even in mid September there was a meter of snow above 7000 feet elevation, so there might be too much snow. But, check into the Arco area, great climbing there, and I understsand it seldom snows there.
Have fun and keep us posted!
