The Dolomites are a section of the Alps. They are located in the province of Belluno and in the provinces of
Bolzano and Trento in north-eastern Italy. Conventionally they extend from the Adige river in the
west to the Piave valley in the east. But the Dolomites spread also over the Piave
river (Dolomiti d' Oltrepiave) to the east; and far away over the Adige river to the west is the Brenta
Group (Western Dolomites); there is also another smaller group called Piccole Dolomiti
(Small Dolomites) located between the Provinces of Trento and Vicenza. One national park and many other regional
parks are located in the Dolomites.
During the First World War the line between the Italian and Austro-Hungarian forces ran through the Dolomites. There are open air war museums at Cinque Torri (Five Towers) and Mount Lagazuoi. Many people visit the Dolomites to climb the Vie ferrate. These are protected paths which were first created in the Dolomites during the First World War. A number of long distance footpaths run across the Dolomites, which are called "Alte vie" (i.e., high paths). Such long trails, which are numbered from 1 to 8, require at least a week to be walked through and are served by numerous "Rifugi" (huts). The first and, perhaps, most renowned is the Alta Via 1.
The region is commonly divided into the Western (Dolomiti di Brenta) and Eastern Dolomites, separated by a line following the Valle dell' Adige. The range includes more than forty glaciers.
The name Dolomites is derived from the famous French mineralogist Drodat Gratet de Dolomieu who was the first to describe the rock, dolomite, a type of carbonate rock which is responsible for the characteristic shapes and colour of these mountains.
A tourist mecca, the Dolomites are famous for skiing in the winter months and mountain climbing (mountaineering), daily excursions, trekking, climbing and Base Jumping, as well as paragliding and hang gliding in summer and late spring/early autumn. Rock climbing has been a tradition in the Dolomites since 1887, when 17-year-old Georg Winkler soloed the first ascent of the pinnacle Die Vajolettuerme. The main centres include: Rocca Pietore alongside the Marmolada glacier, which lies on the border of the Trentino-Alto Adige and Veneto regions, the small towns of Alleghe, Cortina d'Ampezzo, and the villages of Arabba, Ortisei and San Martino di Castrozza, as well as the whole of the Fassa, Gardena and Badia Valleys.
This course is destined for people who love mountain hiking, trekking and via ferrata but would like to extend their knowledge in the rocks and on glaciers in order to being able to proceed in high alpine mountaineering areas in safety.
Marmolada is a mountain in North-Eastern Italy and the highest mountain of the Dolomites Alps in Italy. The mountain is located
about 70 miles north-northeast of Venice, from which it can be seen on a clear day. It
consists of a ridge running west to east. Towards the south it breaks suddenly into sheer cliffs, forming a rock
face several kilometres long. On the North face there is a comparatively flat glacier, the only large glacier in
the Dolomites (the Marmolada Glacier, Ghiacciaio della Marmolada). The Marmolada Dolomites are
famous for rock climbing and mountaineering courses. The ridge is composed of several summits, decreasing in
altitude from west to east: Punta Penia (3,343 m), Punta Rocca (3,309 m), Punta Ombretta (3,230 m), Monte
Serauta (3,069 m), and Pizzo Serauta (3,035 m). An aerial tramway goes to the top of Punta Rocca. Paul Grohmann
made the first ascent in 1864, along the north route.
Before World War I, the border between Austria and Italy ran over Marmolada, so it formed part of the front line. Austrian soldiers were quartered in deep tunnels bored into the northern face's glacier, and Italian soldiers were quartered on the south face's rocky precipices. As glaciers retreat, soldiers' remains and belongings are occasionally discovered.
