Corvara's local mountain
Panoramic climb up Corvara's local mountain, which is technically relatively easy apart from a short rock step.

Access: Über the wide cart track to the Edelweißhütte. Now follow trail 4 to the fork with marker 7, which leads to the right to the Sassongher. There follows a long traverse to the Sassongher-Scharte, where the actual summit construction begins. Route info: Up to the Forcella Sassongher, the climb can be classified as a normal hike. The path to the summit from the saddle requires a little more attention: the path is often washed out and finding your way is not always easy. The steep step, which is secured with a wire rope, should at least be climbed by beginners and less experienced people with the appropriate equipment (via ferrata set). In early summer, you may come across some snow after the steep step! Descent: Über the same route back.
