Easy access, relatively short descent and secured at the beginning. The short passages that are not secured are to be walked on the ferrata instead, especially on the west side of the climb because snow can still cause troubles at the beginning of the walking season.

Access to the ferrata: from Paolina haven (open from June to mid-October) go towards the monument in Christomannos along path n.539 and carry on until the Roda di Vael haven. There are clear indications near the haven to reach the Masarè ferrata; there are also signs at the next crossroads (Via ferrata Masarè). Difficulty: Good physical fitness, strong arms and a steady foot are all required for the ups and downs of the rock-climbing near the summit on the vertical rocks as there are no supports or aids. Technical details: A complex climb, partly exposed, that twists and turns around the Masarè summit. The ferrata is completely secured with steel cables along with some stretches of normal path; the steepest paths are made easier with artificial supports. Type of the path: 90% steel cables, 10% path. Complete gradient of the climb: 595 m, 3-3:30 hours. Gradient to the beginning of the ferrata: 460 m, 1:45 hours. Gradient of the ferrata: about a 120 metre-climb and 60
