The Via Ferrata Laurenzi passes over the Molignon ridge, and is one of the most difficult Via Ferrata routes in the Dolomites. A sure foot, a good head for heights and experience are an absolute must, as, in part, it crosses an exceptionally narrow, exposed ridge. From a scenery point of view, this route promises breathtaking views over the Langkofel range, the Sella massif, the Marmolada and down into the Duron Valley below.

Turn-by-turn directions

This Ferrata route links the Tierser Alpl mountain hut with Antermoia lake. Just before the Molignon Pass, the path leads to the first cable of the Via Ferrata and, along a crest, to the high plateau and the summit of the north-west Molignon. A narrow crest leads you to the Central Molignon. From here, the initial stretch of the ascent is not secured, but it rapidly becomes extremely steep and rocky on a sheer rock face. The final stretch to the lake is over scree land.
