Middle of the

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Middle of the "Via del Galleria"

View down on the second party in the Via del Galleria. Incredibly chossy and hard to protect. Whole pitches without anything, belays consisting out of two rusty pitons and so on. But unlike some other routes just around the corner where the crowds fight for a spot at the belay, you are in perfect solitude. Typical dolomites climbing. Fantastic!

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Choss with a view 2

Perfect weather - perfect view towards the Kleinwalsertal and the "end" of the Alpen where they get flatter and flatter until you are in the glacial and molasse plains in front of them.

Choss with a view

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Choss with a view

Lower part of the east ridge of the Widderstein in the Kleinwalsertal. Loose rock, almost no protection options, rope drag like hell, took all day but nice views and high above the hundred of hikers on the paths below.

Sass Pordoi/ Pordoispitze from the Sella Towers

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Sass Pordoi/ Pordoispitze from the Sella Towers

I just love the look of that wall! Frightening and tempting at once. Unfortunately the weather did not allow going for it. Way to much rain for starting into that big thing. Oh well. Another thing on the "gotta go back there" list.

Last pitch of

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Last pitch of "via del Galleria"

Last pitch of the Route "Via del Galleria", photographed from the top of the Pordoispitze. Given the Name of the route (galleria = tunnel) and the description we where expecting one of the usual old war tunnels that you find all over the dolomites. However it wasnt really a tunnel but this: The first one was squeezing behind a big tower in the middle of the wall, that was mostly detached from the wall. No chance to get through with a backpack on your back. Of course we all had backpacks with us ... lots of fun ... Also nowhere to built a belay, so the only option was to wedge myself into the tight offwidth, hoping that in case of a fall i would not be pulled out. The second "tunnel" is again an offwidth, between a tower and the main peak. However that got filled with scree and snow long ago, so there is only a small and dark, wet and cold chute left. Unfortunately thousands of tourist piss into the hole in the peak plateau, so you can smell the end of the route soon after you leave the last belay. But other than that: highly recommended route. Just make sure you are not claustrophobic and worthlessbelayophobic.

View of the Monte Brento in the Sarca valley. While the Monte Brento does offer some quite big stuff, the Placche zebrate/Sonnenplatten in the lower right offer some interesting limestone slab climbs.

Slab climbing in Val di Mello

Average Rating = 5.00/5 Slab climbing in Val di Mello

More Val di Mello slab. No holds, just some slight nipples in the form of some weathered out feldspar crystals, or some slight deppresions, wich offer a bit more friction than the blanc rock around them.

Slab climbing in Val di Mello

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Slab climbing in Val di Mello

Me at the start of some unknown slab route in the Val die Mello. You can find slab climbs in all variants in the Val di Mello. from bolted sport climbing like to scary and absolutely unprotectable, from easy enough to walk them without hands to so hard that you simply dont know where to place your hands to at least get some kind of friction. In this case everything was somewhere in the middle. bolted enough to not panic and after the easy start along the vein in the picture it got gradually harder the higher i got, soon up the the point where i had to give up.

Morning view towards Val di Mello from camping Sasso Remenno

Average Rating = 5.00/5 Morning view towards Val di Mello from camping Sasso Remenno

Unfortunately we had a lot of rain (and snow in the higher regions) on our trip to the Val di Mello, so we couldnt do much climbing. But nevertheless this view after a rainy night was absolutely stunning. In the middle you see the Val del Ferro, wich offers some climbs directly next to a waterfall (or in a waterfall after much rain) and some climbs with a long approach at the higher rocks. the big rock at the right side is the Pappagallo, the leftmost of the four connected big walls Pappagallo, Altare, Precipizio degli Asteroidi and Qualido. The mountain on the left side must have also some routes, but it seems as it isnt as popular as the ones in the Val die Mello, maybe due to the fact the the approach is long, and that there is a quarry.

Another view of the Sasso Remenno roof

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Another view of the Sasso Remenno roof

The Sasso Remenno is most likely the biggest boulder you can find (see climbers for size, or check google earth). the whole thing and its many satelites must have fallen down to the valley during a big rockfall.

Average Rating = 0.00/5 rappeling from the great roof

Rappeling from the great roof at the sasso remenno. as you can see the road is directly next to the rock. fortunately there isnt to much traffic, but still enough that everyone is stopping to have at look at the climbers.

Aid route on Sasso Remenno

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Aid route on Sasso Remenno

The aid route through the great roof at the Sasso Remenno is completely bolted, but "fortunately" quite a few of the bolts are questionable enough to get some of that "i hope it will hold" aid feeling. It seems like that route isnt done very often, since there were quite a few cars that stoped, so that the people could look at us (there is a road and parking ground directly underneath the roof, see the rappeling picture)

Monte Disgrazia seen form the Val Malenco

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Monte Disgrazia seen form the Val Malenco

Monte Disgrazia is sitting between Val Masino (and so the famous Val di Mello) and Val Malenco. At 3678 m it is the highest of the surrounding mountains (and in my opinion also the most beautifull). I took this photo on a geology field trip, so it was only look, dont touch (but i could tell you about the serpentinites that this mountain is made of, and the contact with the Bergell intursion, whose granodiorites and tonalites made the Val di Mello and the Badile ...), but as Mr. Schwarzenegger said: "ill be back".

The main wall of Osp. The routes DB calls it the great wall, but in the guide book its called Stena, but since i dont speak slovenian, i dont know wich name is correct. Great place nevertheless.

Climbing the Paternkofel

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Climbing the Paternkofel

Guidebook says: Nice classic, fun, well travelled ... Qwert says: 5 rusty pitons on six pitches, loose, rotten stone and gravel everywhere, easy to get off route, but extremely funny with a bunch of drunks and nice view at the Drei Zinnen. But the most remarkable thing is that the top of the mountain was stuffed with guns and barbed wire, so that one could shoot at the enemys on the next mountain during world war one. They even did dig a tunnel (wich is now part of a vie ferrate) to get to the summit without getting shot. War is sick.

Changin' towers

Average Rating = 3.20/5 Changin' towers

hard to discribe this one ... Well... We set up a rope between the first two of the Vajolet towers and went from one to the other. You dont see it in the photo, but there is a large gap between the two towers, and as you can see from the background these things are pretty high. I need to learn how to actually walk such lines and come back ...

The mighty

Average Rating = 4.00/5 The mighty "Drei Zinnen"

The north faces of the "drei Zinnen" are among the most important places when it comes to the history of european alpinism, with its many routes that where/are milestones of alpinism, at the moment led by Alex Hubers route Bellavista, a 8c with no bolts apart from the belays. But the "drei Zinnen" do also have another, dark history. During world war one Austria was fighting against Italy, and the other way round, with the battlefront going through valleys and mountaintops. The base of the "kleine Zinne" (the left one in the picture) has artificial caves where machine guns used to be mounted and you will find lots of barbed wire in the gravel fields below, or even old granades.

This shot came to its life only by luck. I took my camera and just pressed the trigger, hoping to get "some shot of those rocks". Taken the fact that i was on a boat, and there wasnt much light im very happy with the result. I dont know if there are any climbing areas on the Eolian Islands, but there shurely are lots of potential.
