Short and sweet A short via ferrata but rewarding with a stupendous panorama. Access to the via ferrata is simple, the terrain is steep and solid rocks ensure a good grip. A steady foot is required for the descent into the southern gorge full of uneven stones and rubble.
Characteristics: Steep via ferrata, solid rocks with well-placed resting stops, and well-protected. The distances are short between the fixtures and there are frequent steel and tightened cables. The steep path towards the beginning is made easier with the help of a stairway. South facing, it is better to carry out the hike in late spring or late autumn (during sunny days).
Access to the via ferrata: from the path, arrive at the Dantercepies cable-car station that follows a dug-up road (that starts at Hotel Cir) or along the path on your left.
Technical details: via ferrata, short but steep, completely protected with steel cables, a short vertical gap at the end (some arm-strength is needed).
Path type: 100% steel cable.

Gradient of the via ferrata: 85m, 1 hour.
Descent: from the top, turn over the steep gap at the exit of the via ferrata, then follow the
