The accessible summit book
150 years of alpinism in the Sesto Dolomites
The summit book is written proof of heroic deeds in the mountains. Each spectacular first climb told of courage, great ambition, mental strength and technical ability – not to mention a certain measure of madness. It is these very conquests that have been documented in the books high up in the mountains since the late 19th century. Now Sesto has brought the summit books down into the valley, exhibiting them as an accessible art installation and enabling visitors to experience them in authentic fashion.
