The Dolomites: Rock climbs & Via Ferrata Guidebook is representing a true mix of Italian and Austrian culture, the Dolomites contain climbing of every shape and size. Single pitch sport crags lie beside kilometre-long traditional routes, with climbs which are steeped in history running parallel to modern bolted lines.

The area is particularly renowned for its via ferrata, cabled routes predating the Great War which give superb access to some of the World’s most striking summits. The metal wires, interspersed with breathtaking ladders and unlikely suspension bridges, provide aerial assault courses which combine the thrill of an ascent on rock with the security of a protected mountain scramble.

This climb and ferrata guide covers everything you need for a climbing trip regardless of ability, whether it be sport, trad, via ferrata or a combination of all three. It features all the major areas and is the only guidebook available to have such comprehensive coverage.

The book has been authored by James Rushforth who, together with his partner Lynne Hempton, has spent several years documenting the climbs and VFs, and taking some amazing photographs for the book.
