A specialized course to learn how to climb traditional multipitch routes in complete autonomy.

The Via delle Guide on the Crozzon, Spigolo Gasperi on Castelletto di Mezzo, Via del boomerang on Monte Brento, Il Missile on Monte Casale: have you heard of them? They are among the most famous trad/mountaineering routes that every climber hopes to do during their lifetime.
Would you like to fulfil the dream of leading one of these great classics some day?
This course will put you on track, then with some training and a broader approach to climbing, this could be an achievable goal.

The course is intended for those who have already climbed well protected multipitch bolt routes and want to try some more traditional lines that require placing runners like friends, nuts, and pitons.

We learn to set up belays along a route, partially on in-situ gear or from zero.
What to do if you accidentally go off route.
How to deal with multiple abseils down unknown terrain.
Some self-rescue methods to implement as lead climber or second.


The true essence of traditional climbing is introduced by mountaineers who have done routes of all shapes and sizes.

"Long days and sometimes nights on big Dolomite walls have left indelible memories that are difficult to describe, because each ascent, each day, and each situation leaves its own unique impression. What I can guarantee is that the special bond you form with your climbing partners will remain throughout life, as images and emotions that only those who shared them can truly understand.”

First session

  • Revision of climbing calls and communication.
  • Revision of how to belay lead climbers and bring up seconds.
  • Organizing equipment on a belay stance.
  • Placing runners: friends and nuts, correct placement and what to do when they get jammed.
  • We will visit a crag to climb some pitches using a mixture of our own placed runners and fixed bolts. You will need to pluck up the courage to trust falling on your gear in order to learn how to place runners effectively and when they are not worth placing.
  • Other clean protection: threads, vegetation, trees.
  • “Ironmongery” with pitons and hammers. We will practice repeated peg placements because this is an important element in traditional mountaineering that requires experience and technique.

Second session

  • Belays are fundamental components in the safety chain.
  • There is some confusion about this subject because of the many alternatives, but we will establish a clearly defined system.
  • Setting up belays using our own equipment or in-situ gear, we learn to recognize how good placements are and how to back them up.
  • Setting up and testing a belay by dropping a tyre from above.
  • Using half ropes and how to arrange them with runners along a pitch.
  • Multiple abseils down unknown faces.

Third Session

  • Choosing a route, learning to read a description and understand whether it is within our capabilities.
  • Various aspects of walking in to a route.
  • Climbing a traditional multipitch route.

  • Participants must be dressed in sportswear (always bring a pile or windproof jacket)
  • Hiking boots or tough training shoes
  • Rucksack with water (in summer at least 1 litre per person)S
  • Snacks and energy bars
  • Change of vest/T-shirt.

  • All technical equipment
  • Helmet
  • Harness
  • Tecnical gear (gri-gri, tuber, ecc..)
  • Mountain Guide UIAGM
  • Your Alpine Guide will explain how to correctly use the equipment and the techniques required to safely climb the route.

Having climbed some 5c / 6a sports routes
Grade in crag from first 6a

The first and second days will be at a sport climbing crag.
The third day is on a traditional route of 3 or 4 pitches.

The aims are to enable you to climb autonomously at sport crags, understand your personal limits, and avoid the unseen hazards of the apparently relaxed activity of sport climbing, by strictly applying safety check procedures
