Scenic via ferrata route via the Alpinisteig, the Via Ferrata Zadonella and the Rotwand via ferrata in the Sesto Dolomites

The Rotwand is part of the Sesto Sundial and is therefore also known as the "Zehnerkofel" or "Zehner" for short. The Rotwand via ferrata, a relatively easy ferrata, leads to its summit and its construction can be dated to the First World War. At the beginning of the 20th century, the border between Italy and Austria ran in the immediate vicinity, which made the Sesto Dolomites a hard-fought region   At the same time, the Alpinisteig and the Ferrada Zadonella, parts of which have also been walked, were also established and can be combined to form a beautiful circuit.
