A photo documentation of some of the most beautiful mountains in the world. Located in Northern Italy, close to Austrian borders, Dolomites are a playground for the mountain athlete. One of the many sports that one can practice is the via ferrata (routes of iron), the repetition of alpine routes protected by cables and facilitated in places by ladders and cable bridges. This equipment is a legacy of the First World War, when troops were located on these hostile mountains for approximately two years, using such iron aids to move. The area is really crowded in August and probably the best time to visit is July & September. Though one can not get the feeling of isolation and exploration that we are all used to experience in Greece, the ability to be fast, light and secure is overwhelming.
