4 story tellers talk about 150 years of climbing history on the three peaks
In the anniversary year of the 150th first ascent of Cima Grande, Punta Tre Scarperi and Sassolungo, 4 personalities are invited to tell the story of the Sesto Dolomites in 4 short keynote talks: Dr. Helga Peskoller, Dr. Richard Goedeke, Christoph Hainz and Vittorio Messini.
They will reflect on the history of the Sesto Dolomites and tell stories, not about themselves, but about the legends, from the past to the present.
The Vertical Arena is an expert forum on the topic of mountaineering and takes place once a year in the village of Sesto at the foot of the Three Peaks. The event first took place 20 years ago. It was presented in its current form in the Vertical Arena 2017. Together with mountain guide Lisi Steurer, the Sesto Tourist Association has developed a new format for the event, at which renowned personalities from the alpine scene meet annually in Sesto and report on their activities in short lectures. In recent years, Hansjörg Auer, Nicola Tondini, Nadine Wallner, Steve House, Ines Papert, Simon Gietl and several other well-known alpinists have been guests in Sesto.
