Already at the age of 6 I climbed Mount Paterno in the Dolomites of Sesto. After various via ferratas in the Dolomites and high-altitude mountain tours in the Alps, I attended a climbing course in Landro.
Once I’ve learned how to tie a munter hitch and the figure eight follow-through knot, nothing could stop me and together with friends I headed on adventures in the Dolomites, the entire Alpine arch and later on also in different mountains of our planet.
Throughout the years, I was able to gain a lot of experiences, which I am now happy to pass on to all of you.
