4 Peaks Alta Badia: four summits, one challenge
Extreme athletes have been able to face a new, exciting challenge in La Crusc since the spring of 2019: “4 Peaks Alta Badia”. Anyone who manages to climb all four peaks in the Sasso di Santa Croce group in just one day earns the title “Alta Badia Mountaineer”.
Everyone who takes on the “4 Peaks Alta Badia” challenge can look forward to adventure, adrenaline and breathtaking views. The aim is to climb the four peaks Sasso di Santa Croce (Sas dla Crusc 2,907 m), Cima Dieci (Piza dales Diesc 3,026 m), Lavarella (3,055 m) and Conturines (3,064 m). This is a challenge which tests climbers to their limits even when attempted in stages. Now extreme athletes can take it on, but in just one day (total time: approx. 11.00 hours).
The wild side of the Dolomites
These demanding tours take you literally up hill and down dale. Climbers follow well-maintained trails, paths and also via ferratas up to the peaks through the awesome Dolomites, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Some exposed, unsecured sections of the route add an extra sense of adventure.
A “light variant” is also available for those who prefer secured terrain, where the walking time is longer (about 14.15 hours) but the exposed section is avoided.
Award of trophy and diploma
If you’d like to take on the 4 Peaks Alta Badia challenge, you can first register online at www.4peaks.it. Participants then receive a summit pass. On each of the four peaks there’s a punch bearing a special symbol and, once on the summit, you simply press the respective symbol onto your pass.
All those who complete all four summits in two or more days are certainly worthy of bearing the title “Alta Badia Finisher”. And those who succeed in climbing the four peaks within a single day will be named “Alta Badia Mountaineer” and be granted a place of honour on the online “Wall of Fame”. Participants can also take home a diploma and a trophy as a memento.
