I'm going to be in Arco and the Dolomites in July and August and in need of a partner. Sport, trad, multi-pitch, just want to get as much in as possible.
Will have a full trad rack, ropes, sport line etc...

Hi Tom! Writing this from the airport so excuse the clumsiness:

I'm doing a stint in Val di Mello from the 8th July for 2-ish weeks then would love to partner up and case Arco and the Dolomites.

I'm sitting on F6a+ now, hoping to crack 6b over the summer. Experience-wise I've done lots of single and multi-pitch sport routes, no experience with trad yet but I'm planning to attack it in Val di Mello, so shall have a full trad rack.

I enjoy travelling super light, wild camping - as with you, I want to climb as much as possible, every single day.

Let me know!

To elaborate further,


Inspired by some great climbing in Sicily, I'm looking for partners to join me on a climbing tour taking in crags in Italy, Austria and France from July through September. The super-flexible-and-open-ended-plan is to drive from Aberdeen, Scotland to Val di Mello, Italy around July 8th and go from there taking in the following areas:

Val di Mello, Dolomites, Lake Arco, Valle dell' Orco (Italy)
Innsbruck (Austria)
Ceuse, Verdon Gorge (France)

I haven't been in the game too long but I can onsight F6a+, have sent a few 6b routes and itching to learn. My focus will be on single and multi-pitch sport routes but if there are trad masters out there - consider me a willing apprentice.

Be it for the whole trip or component parts, I'd love to hear from you. I enjoy travelling light, bivying for fun, wild camping and general endurance-related suffering. Other vices include field recording, environmental psychology and weiƟbier. I'm 24, from North-East Scotland and have spent the last few years moving between Berlin, Den Haag and Copenhagen.

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Hi Michael,

Nice to meet you! It sounds like you've got a great trip lined up.

I'm heading to the Dolomites around July 5th for two weeks and am looking for a partner who is interested in sport, trad and via ferrata climbing. I've been climbing on and off in Australia and the US for 20 years. I sport climb VI+ / VII- and am happy to lead or second on trad at a slightly lower grade. That said, I'm keen to sharpen my skills on sport routes and will push the grades.

I'm planning to get a train to Bolzano and was then thinking about getting a rental car. I was considering basing myself out of Corvara or Colfosco and climbing as often as possible - although I'm flexible on all fronts. I'm 42, a documentary filmmaker by trade and have lots of energy and enthusiasm.

I hope to hear from you soon.
