Adrenaline Hike along the via ferrata that requires endurance, an excellent physical condition and Alpine experience. It’s best to avoid the path if the weather turns bad because it is so exposed. Given the considerable length of the hike it is recommended to stay overnight in a haven in the region.
Characteristics of the via ferrata: large crossing with relatively long climb and descent. The via ferrata is only partially secured with steel cables, the rest of the hike is made up of normal path, with some exposed stretches which can be rock-climbed. A steady foot is required, especially in the mountain ridge. A relatively exposed climb with various stretches that are not secure but with some easy rock-climbing on the mountain ridge.
Access to the via ferrata: from the cable-car station take path n.2 towards the Alpe di Tires haven, 2,411 m (open from mid-June to 5th October where there is overnight accommodation).
Difficulty: relatively exposed climb, with various stretches that are not secure; some easy rock-climbing on the mountain ridge.
Technical details: the route is only partially secured by steel cables and most of it is walkable, even if some stretches are exposed which do require a steady step. The descent is long, with two strenuous “counter-climbs”.
