Dolorock, a wonderful climbing experience in Höhlensteintal, Dolomites

by

There are 10 days left until the end of Dolorock, the climbing festival in the Höhlensteintal / Valle di Landro in the Dolomites.

"It was my first time in the valley. Beautiful. And the crags were beautiful, too!" This is what, just the other day, one of the participants said about Dolorock, the international Climbing Festival currently taking place in Höhlensteintal / Valle di Landro in the Italian Dolomites

After a year off due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the meeting returned this summer with an eighth edition which, instead of taking place on a single weekend, takes place throughout the entire month of July, allowing climbers plenty of time to discover the crags in Höhlensteintal and nearby Val Rienza.

Climbers can therefore choose the day, or days, when to climb above the turquoise waters of Lake Landro or opposite Tre Cime di Lavaredo, at one of the nine crags used for the "competition". As always this is an informal comp, as the meeting formula remains unchanged: the five most difficult routes (on sight, flash, toprope) are added to the online "scorecard", and at the end of the month the Dolorock team will choose the winner. In addition to pro and "average value" categories, this year a new category takes into account the most number of routes climbed throughout the month. The vent finishes in just over a week , so here's the link to organise the next few days: www.dolorock.com

Speaking of the next few days: those taking part this weekend could do well on Saturday at 20:00 in Sesto Pusteria to watch Climbing Iran, the award-winning film by Francesca Borghetti about Iranian climber Nasim Eshqi. At the end of the screening the Tehran-born 36-year-old will take part in a discussion tabled by the mountain guide Lisi Steurer entitled "pioneers in the mountains". The event is part of the fifth edition of the Vertical Arena (tickets cost 10 euros).
