Tomas began his career as an alpinist after several years of competitive alpine ski racing. He discovered that the ‘real mountains’ were what he was seeking and where he felt at home so he began to explore them by every means and in every season: rock climbing, ice climbing, freeriding, big wall climbing and international expeditions outside of Europe. Fortunately for Tomas, the Dolomites region he grew up in offered a variety of terrain for a multitude of alpine activities. In fact, the first mountains that Tomas climbed were the ones at his front door, Gruppo Brenta and Presanella. Tomas then moved further afield to Trentino, the Alps and beyond.
Tomas initially climbed existing routes but once he had tasted the feeling of establishing a new route, he couldn’t stop seeking untouched climbing routes on walls and mountains around the world. These remote places offer Tomas the chance to experience the thing he cherishes most: adventure. He does not necessarily seek out difficult routes but rather ones that allow him to explore. Tomas often chooses solo climbing, where contact with nature is strong. For Tomas, his wider approach to climbing is also important. He has a great respect for nature and the landscape, so on first ascents he always tries to leave the wall as ‘clean’ as possible, with no trace of his visit - ‘Alpine Style’.
Since his first expedition outside Europe to Patagonia in 2012, Tomas has tried to organize an international expedition every year to a place where he can be rewarded by alpine challenges, adventure and culture. The videos, photos and material produced during his expeditions are often presented at shows in Italy and internationally.
Although Tomas is primarily based in Madonna di Campiglio in northern Italy, he guides throughout the European Alps.
