Across the rocks A very long climb and extremely challenging via ferrata. Well-secured except in the higher parts that have no secure poles which leave it exposed. The first stretch of the hike twists and turns around firm and steady rocks. However be careful in the higher parts as there is scree and unstable rocks. The steel cables are firmly attached and tightened while the more difficult passages are equipped with stirrups.
Characteristics: this challenging via requires physical strength and a steady foot. Alpine experience and a steady foot on the exposed stretches are essential to succeed the climb. Given the length of the climb, rock-climbing should be done in stable weather conditions.
Difficulty: In the first 150 m of the climb there are considerable obstacles and difficulties to overcome (extremely challenging); the rest of the path twists and turns on less difficult terrain. Strong arms, good physical fitness and Alpine experience are all essentials for the via.
Access to the ferrata: the path that leads to the beginning of the ferrata starts at the Ossario which is well sign-posted. Climb along a stretch that is on relatively steep terrain until the foot of the rocky Piz Boè sides. From there walk along path n.7 that will lead you to the beginning of the ferrata towards the right.
Technical details: long climb on steep rocks; rock-climb on vertical sides for the first stretch, on some smooth
