At high altitude in the Ortles group


The Gran Zebrù and the Ortles are counted amongst the most famous peaks in the eastern alps.
With its 3902 mt., the Ortles is the highest peak in the whole of the Alto Adige, therefore, but not only for this, it is one of the key moments of our programme.
The ascent, in fact, is characterized by an interesting mix of rock and ice.
Another highlight is the ascent of the Gran Zebrù, to face up to this we request an excellent athletic preparation, and above all, experience in using crampons.
This does not mean that the other objectives of our week are boring, but simply less demanding, ideal as preparation for challenging the two "celebrities".
In other words, expect and intense week from the technical point of view and very absorbing because of the scenery.
