Hello Everyone!
I'm hoping to get your advice and suggestions on the itinerary I have so far for my solo trip to the Dolomites. I included it below. If you see any sections you would like to JOIN for, PLEASE let me know as well:)

I will be there July 27- August 25th. Please let me know if you see better paths to take or things I should not miss. I wanted to spend the first 10 days in the Cortina area and the last 20 days doing the Alta via 2 from Santa Maddelena. I added a 6 day variation to see Sassalungo and Rosengarten. I'm an experienced rock climber (can lead 5.11 sport/ can't lead trad but will follow) and am willing to hire a guide for about 6-7 days scattered throughout of the trip- if you see areas along my path or in the areas listed that are spectacular for climbing please tell me! Otherwise I am willing to hike crazy long distances and do lots of via ferratas. If you know great climbing guides I can hire that can meet me in the climbing places listed please let me know. Also, what is your favorite via ferrata lanyard?
