Hi guys, I am trying to organise a trip to the Dolomites and wondering whether anyone has any idea about the best bouldering areas around Cortina, crags etc. Ideally looking for boulderfields, whole areas etc, as I am catering to a wide variety of abilities (3-7b+!)

Cheers

they have had record snow this winter bud (5 metres), so it may be some while before you see a boulder..

I've only really done sport routes here but there's a fair bit of bouldering too...

Yep, Citta de Saas is the only place I know off, also some routes there. And having skied through there a month a go, I'd say most of those routes would currently count as highballs!

From memory I think you may find more on http://www.planetmountain.com/english/home.html but don't think the dollies is renowned for it's bouldering - val di mello may be a better choice

Hi,
Even if I'm italian, I've never done some bouldering in the Dolomites. Anyway I probably have some info that could be useful for you. The most famous location to do bouldering in the Dolomites are Val di Daone (just above Lake Garda, next to Arco) or Val Gardena - Citta' dei Sassi.

Anyway there is a german website quite useful with a lot of topos of places where you can do bouldering in the Alps or Dolomites. Just click on the link and then a google maps of Italy will appear. If you click on the symbol located on the place you are interested, a link will appear with the description and the topo.

Hope to have helped you.

Cheers,
Giulia
