Last year it was the story of me and my two climbing friends, Frog and Pigmy who have climbed together since the late 70s (when records began…). During the month of July 2011 they joined me in the Dolomites in the hope that we could climb some of the magnificent routes that the Dolomites have to offer, and throw a few Vie Ferrate in on our rest days.

It didn’t quite turn out that way. Knee-deep snow at the peak of Summer thwarted our plans and turned us into reluctant tourists, managing to do only two Ferrate, and scaling the Torre Grande, or Grand Tower of Tre Cime de Lavaredo.

Joined this year, by Andy we hope to have better luck with the weather. But we’re also ready to move to wherever the sun is shining and we can climb, instead of look at pictures….
