DoloMitiche 2.0 - Brenta Base Camp
From 28 July to 6 August DoloMitiche 2.0 – "Brenta Base Camp"; New routes up old peaks. Three new climbs will be established in the Brenta Dolomites.
An adventure on our mountains: the idea is to go and open up a series of new rock-climbing routes on the peaks-symbols of the Brenta Dolomites, on the occasion of
the 150th anniversary of the start of mountaineering in the Group.
In particular, a trilogy will be created (three new routes on three different faces) in a single combination, almost like a little expedition.
The base camp will be located near the Pedrotti Hut on the Tosa, strategically positioned from the logistic point of view. This structure was chosen for a particular reason: for more than a century now the hut has been the favourite foothold on the Alps for mountaineers and hikers, and we want to stress the positive aspects of the social interaction and aggregation that are created here, which also contribute to enriching the mountaineering experience: in short, to communicate the pleasure of shared mountaineering and its multiple aspects, which is much more than just a sports performance.
The people staying at the hut can thus live side by side for 10 days with today’s protagonists of Dolimitic exploration, compete with them and get a first-hand look at their exploits. The final aim is to make a documentary/film, which will be shown during the 2005 edition of the Trento Mountain Film Festival
