CLIMBING
  
In the mountains you’ll find out who you really are inside. Climbing is like a mirror which shows only one picture: ourselves.
(Max Liotier 1969)
  
Climbing MOVE kick starts the season with many more outdoor activities to come throughout the year. Sport-climbing, alpine-climbing, bouldering and slacklining: Val Gardena would like to invite both amateurs and professionals to take part to this Climbing MOVE initiative in The Dolomites holiday valley. This event is intended for both the uninitiated and seasoned climbers. The proposed activities will teach beginners the fundamentals of climbing and help everyone else perfect their technique and improve their resistance. It will also be an opportunity for different outdoor brands to showcase their new equipment and clothing and, of course, for you to try them out to your heart's content. Val Gardena would like to invite you, with the support of the “Catores” Mountain School and the “Mountain Guide Association Val Gardena”, the Amateur Sport Clubs “ASK” and “GAG”, to go on an adventure in the UNESCO World Heritage Site which is the Dolomites.

More outdoor than this is not possible: surrounded by the spectacular Dolomites.
