CROSSING THE JULIAN ALPS
“For all the mountains I have seen, nothing equals the Julian [Alps]” writes J. Kugy in his book The Life of a Mountaineer. This is how he begins the chapter about the Julian Alps. Perhaps for its crystalline waters, or perhaps for its impressive mountains (despite their modest altitude) that gives them a more severe look compared to more famous mountain massifs, whichever the case, Kugy, writer, alpinist and traveler, was an expert of this relatively unknown and yet so very fascinating side of the Alps.
The starting and arrival point of this circular crossing is Valbruna, a little village at the beginning of Val Saisera, one of the most beautiful valleys of the Julian Alps.

TRAVERSE OF BRENTA DOLOMITES
Maps don’t lie: The Brenta Dolomites are the only dolomitic massifs situated on the Adige River’s west side. So…why are they called Dolomites? If you traverse one of their spectacular routes among peaks, towers, and ledges above overhanging walls, you understand that they are more dolomitic than you can imagine! This is not the reason however since, geologically speaking, they are made by dolomia (as are the rest of the Dolomites) and not limestone.
The proposed itinerary takes advantage of the system of equipped ledges that cross the massifs from north to south. There is also the possibility, with greater mountaineering commitment, which is never greater than II grade, to reach the top of the massifs’ highest peaks: Tosa Peak and Brenta Peak.
