Ideal crag for a cool climb immersed in an exceptional dolomite environment on high-quality shaped and rough limestone.
The rock wall of Raffaele and Natale Vidi sets itself apart for the beauty of the rock, for the large number of itineraries and for the possibility of climbing on two-pitch routes (9 routes) in very picturesque surroundings.

This crag is typically climbed in summer. The altitude (2,325 m) and the exposure (west/southwest) make climbing pleasant only in hot periods.

The limestone belt offers medium-low difficulty with some more demanding pitches of 6c+, 7a and a nice 7b, bolted with anchors and bolts or resin anchors.

Opened by Ferruccio and Sandro Vidi, the crag is dedicated to Raffaele and Natale Vidi, alpine guides who made history in the Brenta group in the years between the two world wars when the summer tourism of the European aristocracy took hold in Madonna di Campiglio.

There are 42 pitches at the crag, each of which bears the nickname of the various Rendena families.

  • Climb: 42 pitches from 3 to 7b
  • Exposure: west/southwest (the cliff remains in the shade until 1 pm)
  • Route length: from 15 to 45 m (2-pitch routes)
  • Type: limestone - dolomite

Price:

Free.

 

Equipment

Normal for rock climbing: harness, shoes, climbing chalk, quickdraws, rope and safety equipment.

 

Climbers are aware of and accept the dangers inherent in this activity and do so at their own risk.
