DOLOMITE MEETS TONALITE
As Rendena Valley separates the Brenta Dolomites from the Adamello-Presanella group, it allows you to have two types of rock close at hand and rope. These are dolomite, a type of limestone, and tonalite, a granite-like rock. You will be able to climb in two different environmental contexts with their own characteristics and climbing styles. So, one day you can climb the tonalite cliffs in Val di Genova and the next day choose a dolomite climbing wall in Madonna di Campiglio or in the villages of the lower valley. Even the offer of modern multipitch routes can be satisfied on both sides. The dolomite can be best experienced in Corna Rossa surroundings, near the Graffer refuge, with a facilitated access by cable car that goes up to the Grostè pass. For tonalite, you can choose the area of the Segantini refuge, where a mountain road that reaches over 2000 meters height, allows short approaches. Also, in about forty-five minutes by car, it is possible to reach Arco, the Italian mecca of sport climbing and the Sarca Valley, where climbing is possible all year round.
