This year the annual gathering, which got to its eleventh edition, will be hosted by the "Ciamorces de Fascia". It’s a prestigious appointment, directed to mountaineers, mountain guides, excursionists, but also to those who love the mountain. In Campitello, the main location for mountaineers in Val di Fassa, well known since the late ’800, the Base camp will be set up. The programme forecasts climbs on artificial walls by the ADEL climbing hall in "Ischia", programmed excursions at high altitude, an important themed conference open to everybody, dinner with live music and the official salute from the president of the “Ciamorces de Fasha”, Stefano Bonello.
The "Ciamorces de Fasha". The group is composed by mountain guides, volunteers of the Alpine Rescue and mountaineers. It was established in 1969 with the aim of bringing back the historic mountaineering, creating a close-knit group, able to spread and enhance mountaineering, pass down to the young generations the ideals of climbing, of life and of the discovery on the mountains.
