A crossing A long hike that requires good physical fitness and resistance. The via ferrata is only one part of the entire climb and from the Campanili di Dentro crossroads you can get to the Grande del Latemar crossroad. Long stretches of the via ferrata twist and turn on a walkable Alpine terrain, but it is without safety steel cables, and in parts is impassable and goes over crumbly ground. A steady foot is absolutely necessary on this unsecure path.
Characteristics of the via ferrata: A difficult passage on rocks (I degree), without secure cables on the last stretch of the ferrata. Short descent by steps, steep and exposed, followed by the aerial crossing with steel cables and exposed climb. The steel cables are not very tight, and some of the protruding wires of the cables can lead to hand injuries and abrasions.
Access to the via ferrata: from the cable-car station (signposted) path n. 18 takes you to the Camosci/ Gamsstallscharte crossroad, 2, 620m. Descend in a North-Easterly direction, and follow the signposted 18-516 (on the right starts the path for the Torre di Pisa haven). Walk across the valley of the Alta Valsorda and arrive at the Campanili di Dentro crossroads, 2,590 m.
Technical details: simple ferrata, but long, some stretches are walkable, one exposed point without security cables (I degree), a steep descent down steps followed by an aerial cross (steel cables).
Type of the path: 30% steel cable, 2% steps, 5%
