Danger and Fear Climbing the Italian Dolomites Mountain

Danger and Fear Climbing the Italian Dolomites Mountain


Experiencing a lot of challenging Via Ferrata I thought my rational fear had subsided over time. That was until me and my friends had to cross an icy bridge that was completely open to the elements. Without any protection of my carabiner clips and iron wire I suddenly felt extremely at risk. Either side of the foot wide ice crossing were drops that had no bottom and considering we were climbing on a mountain that stood over 2000 m tall my guess is that if I had slipped I would not be retelling this story today. If I learnt one thing don't underestimate the dolomite mountains.
