Short, scenic mountain tour with easy ascent and descent. Varied climbing, beautiful rock and partly quite steep terrain. Some exposed parts. Descent from the summit via a wide path down to the Rifugio Des Alpes.

Characteristics: Some steep uphills, partly with few footholds, but well secured. Short steel rope distances between the anchorages, pleasantly thick rope, well braced. A steep passage is overcome with the help of iron clamps. The orientation to the south allows an early ascent of this via ferrata and also permits an ascent in late autumn (provided there is good weather). Access: From the Sella Pass towards the Rifugio Valentini and along the gravel path to the Forcella Rodella. To the left up to the Rifugio Des Alpes and the top station of the cable car. Descend past the cable car station, keeping to the right on the unmarked trail to the paragliding launch site (wind vane). The entry point is directly above the wind vane. Technical details: Short via ferrata, completely secured with steel ropes, some airy, exposed sections, short steep ascent with iron stirrups. Detailed sections on the via ferrata: 95 % steel rope, 5 % iron stirrups. Total ascent: 350 m, 1:30-2:00 h. Ascent: 240 m,
