Italy CLIMBING/CRUTCHING TRIP REPORTS


This page provides links to my trip reports in Italy, which so far I have visited on two occasions. The first time was in Nov-Dec 2010, when I spent five weeks in northern Italy as a TA for an engineering course at the ROSE School in Pavia. Despite the fact that I had a broken leg (due to a serious climbing accident that fall), making Italy an obstacle course of train stations, Fiats, cobblestones, and stairs, I managed to do several unique day trips to nearby areas (like Cinque Terre, Lake Como, Certosa di Pavia, Pisa, Lucca, Milan, Trento-Bolzano-Renon, and Venice). Since at the time I planned on someday climbing in the Dolomites, writing a trip report of my crutching adventures was a good way to set up an Italy section for my website.

Indeed, three years later, in August 2013, following a trip in Switzerland with my parents, I met up with my friend from Munich and we climbed some long moderate classic routes in the Dolomites.
