Dolorock 2018 climbing festival in the Dolomites
From 25 to 27 May 2018 the sixth edition of the Dolorock Climbing Festival will take place all around the Tre Cime di Lavaredo, Dolomites.
This year the festival organised by the Alta Pusteria climbing club “Gamatzn” opens with an unusual cultural show. On Friday, 25.05. at 9:00 pm there will be a drive-in cinema at the Dobbiaco indoor climbing centre. It shows a cult film on the history of sports climbing. That is all the organising committee is prepared to give away
On Saturday, 27.05. it’s time for the Dolorock Red Point Fight from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm. This climbing contest takes place in the climbing crags in Val di Landro. Points are awarded for each freely climbed route. The 5 best routes per participant are included in the ranking. The rankings are (for each, women and men): professional, amateur (mean value), youth and 50+.
At 7:30 pm the awards ceremony with many non-cash prizes will take place in the marquee in the Dolorock area (at the Grand Hotel Dobbiaco). Those who still have enough muscle power can compete at the Zlagboard contest. The culture club “Circolo Culturale” provides food and drink. After the awards ceremony celebrations and dancing continue with the group “Cindy & the Rock History”. If you don’t want to go home, you can pitch your tent at the Dolorock campsite.
For the perfect start to Sunday a climber’s brunch is served in the Dolorock marquee from 8:30 am to 11:00 am. Tired limbs are restored at 11:00 am with "Yoga with Karin" and “Massage techniques for climbers". “Gamatzn Kids Climbing", a free taster climb for children, also takes place at 11:00 am in the children's climbing crag at the Sesto Caravan Park.
