The tour does not entail any particular difficulties and once you have reached the panoramic peak, the return journey is along the classic and safe SAT 500 trail. The loop trail offers you the chance to visit two refuges located at the foot of Mount Roen: Oltradige Refuge and Malga di Romeno Refuge.

Author’s recommendation

The rock face on which the via ferrata develops has an Eastern exposure so the sun lights it directly in the morning: so, depending on the season, decide on the best time of the day to avoid getting too hot in summer or to seek out the warm rays in autumn.

Destination

Malga di Romeno

Turn-by-turn directions

From Malga di Romeno, take country road number 560 leading towards Oltradige Refuge. The via ferrata begins right near the refuge; follow the signs to "Klettersteig".

Once you have put on the equipment required to tackle the via ferrata, follow the metal rope across a series of small rock faces. The difficulty level is low, but the suspended and at times exposed environment as you climb up the rock face may seem daunting.

After about 45 minutes, you will reach the ridge and trail marker 523 leading you to Mount Roen Peak.

Return along trail 500 climbing down to Malga di Romeno.
