Dolorock 2019, the great climbing festival in the heart of the Dolomites

by

From 24 to 26 May 2019 the seventh edition of the Dolorock Climbing Festival will take place all around the Tre Cime di Lavaredo, Dolomites. The event is open to all and is designed welcome diversity, promote tolerance and nurture critical discussions on issues related to climbing and mountaineering.

Dolorock is back for the seventh year running. The international climbing meeting in the heart of the Dolomites takes place from 24 - 26 May and over the years it has developed into one of the early highlights of the climbing season, and one of the biggest climbing meetings in Europe.

Organised by the Alta Pusteria Gamatzn rock climbing club, the festival starts on Friday 24 May when the first participants arrive, pitch their tents in the Dolorock Area next to the Toblach railway station and move across to the drive-in cinema to watch the screening of a cult climbing film.

Saturday morning things bing in earnest with the Dolorock Red Point Fight in the numerous crags reflected in the crazy colours of Lake Landro. The rules of this game are simple: points are awarded for each route and the 5 best climbs per participant are included in the ranking. Obviously there are different categories: pros, amateur (mean value), youth and 50+. At 7:00 pm the awards ceremony takes place in the Dolorock area and this is followed by the usual Zlagboardcontest and the legendary climbers party.

Sunday morning, on the contrary, is dedicated to relax: the climbers brunch takes place from 8:30 am to 11:00 am, while Yoga for climbers starts at 10:00 am. Obviously those who wish to can spend the rest of the day climbing, up in beautiful Val di Landro below the Tre Cime di Lavaredo.
