Among all the peaks of the group the most famous, especially among climbers, is without a doubt Campanil Basso. Extraordinary number and variety of vertical walls, peaks above 3000 meters and bare rocks. Here the stratigraphic succession and stages of the structural and tectonic evolution of the Dolomites are well represented. There is however a long modern high capacity lift that goes from Madonna del Campiglio right up the main chain of the Brenta Group to Passo Grostè at 2444 meters. Former European Champion (2006, 2010) and World Cup Silver Medalist (2011) Paragliding Luca Donini is from Molveno.[28]. Eventually, these layers were pushed upwards by the tectonic activity that led to the formation of the Alps during the Eocene, starting some 66 million years ago and leading to the formation of folds and thrust faults. The hard compact dolomite with a high magnesium content was formed during the Upper Triassic period. The Dolomiti di Brenta, rising inside the nature reserve Parco Naturale Adamello Brenta, are a long mountain range stretching for 42 km and with a width of 12 km in a series of peaks, ramparts, gullies, rocky plateaus and pinnacles of the most varied shapes and sizes. Some peripheral subgroups, like Ghez, Daino, Vallon and Campa are far away from all the touristic attention - even on an August day. From a geomorphological point of view, the Dolomiti di Brenta, made of calcareous and dolomite rocks, present three types of geomorphological diversity: here you can see landforms and shapes related to the tectonics, like escarpments, aiguilles and pinnacles; active erosion phenomena due to the current freezing/thawing activity and relic forms shaped by the action of ancient glaciers; and a well-developed karst system, both at surface level, with wells and ridged fields, and at subterranean level, with caves and sinkholes. In the history of alpinism, the Brenta Dolomites had an important role to play.

Most hikers come to the Brenta Group[22] to hike along the Via della Bocchette and connected vie ferrate, like Sentiero Castiglioni. al Cacciatore (1820 m), Rif. Thank you in advance! On the east side of the Brenta Group the ski slopes are located on the Paganella. Castiglioni, page 65; Girardi, page 201-203. A treasure! Those areas, however, are somehow less interesting for the vertical rock climbers because of the fragility of the more calcareous rock. Our editorial staff is always committed to ensuring the highest quality and accuracy of the information we publish. The hard dolomite (dolomia principale) was originally formed during the Mesozoic era, under the surface of the shallow Tethys Ocean, some 200 million years ago.

The stratigraphic succession from the Norian-Liassic, illustrating the transition between the Trento Platform and the Lombard Basin, is especially well-preserved. [23] A completion of the whole south-north itinerary departing from Rif. The difference is clearly noticeable for the climber who gets a much more compact and reliable rock on the peaks of the central part of the Brenta Group than in the peripheral subgroups.

Other mountain groups of similar geological structure are spread along the River Piave to the east – Dolomiti d'Oltrepiave; and far away over the Adige River to the west – Dolomiti di Brenta (Western Dolomites). These wild remote areas pose their own specific challenges and a hike in these areas requires cautious preparation. The Brenta Group counts a number of lakes of which the Molveno Lake and the Tovèl Lake are the most significant. Insta Spots SEE ALL. Later, in 1968-'69 the itinerary was extended towards the Bocca del Tuckett by a trajectory called Via delle Bocchette Alte, a challenging itinerary that reaches a quota of 3002 meters and traverses the Cima Brenta east face just under the summit.

For this reason it is also the habitat of a group of bears, which is the last in the alpine area. This area covers 650 km2. [25] Signed mountain paths cross the entire Brenta Dolomites, giving access to much frequented areas of these mountains. Besides that, the explorative character of alpinism gave way to the ascent of rock climbing as a sport. :bivacco) have been erected at high and remote altitudes: Bivacco Castiglioni (3135 m) at the summit of Crozzon di Brenta, Bivacco Bonvecchio (2790 m) 300 m north of the Cima Sassara, and Bivacco Costanzi at 2365 m on the Sasso Rosso.
