Summary

South Tyrol, or Alto Adige, is a province in northeast Italy. It includes part of the Dolomites range, with limestone summits like the Three Peaks of Lavaredo and many other major summits and cliffs.

Description

South Tyrol is a highly mountainous region and thus also offers endless climbing possibilities.

You can choose between vast, warm valleys, full of apple trees, wine and even palm trees, where you might experience an almost Mediterranean feeling. On the other side, South Tyrol also has a wilder, more rugged, but equally impressive side: the impressive Dolomites, Alpine flora with some of the highest peaks in the Eastern Alps such as the Ortler. In between, there are high-Alpine pastures, deep valleys, earth pyramids, crystal clear lakes, roaring waterfalls and endless cliffs. Make your pick!

The climbing region on theCrag isn't completely identical with the Italian province as parts here are listed within the Dolomites region and Bormio area, too.
