Program of advanced courses in the Brenta Dolomites
Meeting point: in your hotel at Lake Garda or in San Lorenzo in Banale or to be agreed upon - Ascent to Rifugio Agostini through the Ambiez valley (duration 5 hrs.). We have the possibility to hire a taxi jeep (Cost 20 Euro per person) to the Rifugio Cacciatore (good pastasciutta), from there we reach Rifugio Agostini in 1,5 hrs. by foot
In the afternoon we try our equipment, we practice belaying und learn some knots with the rope and set our crampons in order not to lose time the following days on the difficult via ferrata.
- 1st overnight stay in Mountain Lodge Agostini in the Brenta Dolomites -
Departure from the Rifugio at 08.30 a.m. to a small rock climbing wall near the Lodge (ascent 10 min.). Here we practice the rock climbing technique on easy routes with top rope system. The mountain guide belays you from the ground and he can check and correct your rock climbing technique and foot position. We also try abseiling and belaying a partner in case of difficulty.
In the afternoon we reach a small glacier in ca. 30 minutes named Vedretta d' Ambiez to learn the correct use of crampons and how you have to belay a partner in a glacier area. In the Brenta Dolomites this would not be necessary but it is indispensable in other via ferrata areas (es. Marmolada Dolomites).
The experience of this day is very important for the continuation of our course.
- 2nd. overnight stay in Mountain Lodge Agostini in the Brenta Dolomites -
From the mountain lodge we ascent in 45 minutes to the beginning of "Via ferrata Castiglioni". The vertical high ladders improve our body resistance until we reach the Bocchetta dei due denti (1st pass).
Downhill we reach the Rifugio XXII Apostoli right in time for lunch and later up to Bocchetta dei camosci (2nd pass). Short descent on the Vedretta dei Camosci where we cross with crampons and later on up on "Sentiero dell' Ideale" following an easy track to the Bocca d' Ambiez (3rd pass - the highest in the Brenta Dolomites). From the Bocca down on the Vedretta d' Ambiez (wear the crampons again) until the Mountain Lodge Agostini. Duration of this fantastic via ferrata round trip (the best in the Brenta Dolomites) is ca. 6/7 hrs. walk.
- 3rd overnight stay in Mountain Lodge e Agostini in the Brenta Dolomites -
Starting early from Rifugio Agostini at 7.30 because we have a long day ahead of us. We ascent the with crampons to the Vedretta d' Ambiez to reach the "Sentiero Brentari" in ca. 45 minutes which is leading us to the gigantic wall of Cima Tosa (the highest Top of the Brenta Group). Downhill towards Rifugio Pedrotti alla Tosa but we are not going to reach it as it would make our daily trip too long. In spite we follow the Sentiero Palmieri towards Rifugio Agostini. We collect our remaining belongings and start our descent through Val d' Ambiez until we reach San Lorenzo in Banale. The duration of entire route can be up to 8 or 9 hrs. In case this should be too much for you, we suggest to spend an additional night in the mountain lodge and descent more comfortable the following day.
