Agordino, the house of climbing
Climbing among the Giants in the wild Heart of the Dolomites
To sum up in just one page all the information regarding the history and the practice of rock climbing in the Agordino area is a hard task, almost impossible; between the 19th and 20th Centuries the heart of the Dolomites was the setting of some of the most exciting and brilliant achievements in the history of climbing.
The Agordino area can be considered one of the most known and appreciated world destinations thanks to the presence on its territory of some of the most fascinating and vertical peaks of the Dolomites area (Civetta, Agner, Marmolada and much more). After all, the wealth of vertical walls that climbing enthusiasts can find in Agordino has few, very few comparisons, not only in the Dolomites UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site, but also in the entire Alpine range and even in the world. In fact a lot of climbers from all over the world choose the Dolomites as the ultimate proving ground to test their skills and abilities.
