/ Dolomite climbing - camping around Cortina?
While I'm at it: Are there any hire car companies that operate from Cortina?
Are you asking if other areas completely may be better? Sella Pass is not that far away and whilst busy - its really good for trad rock climbing and there is a lot of via ferreta (and not too bad for sport climbing either). I haven't been to Cortina so can't comment on that area.
We've stayed in Camping Olympia before (and am about to stay again next week) and its pretty nice. Three VF's at least within walking distance, but the crags are a drive away, and Cinque Torre is about 20 mins away by car.
Cortina itself is a few K's away, but easily walkable. I'd drive though seeing as parking is like €1 in the town.
Oh there are also two other campsites a bit closer to the town (to the south), and they seemed good when I looked at them as well, just a bit more family-orientated.
We stayed at Camping Dolomiti, right outside Cortina on the far side from Olympia.
3 sites all very close together but was recommended this one by friends as the most suitable.
No kids clubs, evening entertainment, or bar. Easy walking of Cortina. No extra charge for showers, washing machines or electric hookups. Choice of sunny or shady pitches.
Hey Stevo, Thanks for your answer. Actually, I was asking about camping in the Cortina area, either the commercial or unofficial camping grounds for climbers. Cheers
Thanks Alex, I'll take note of your information. Cheers
Thanks Jenny, I'll check it out. Sounds good too.
