One of the famous old ferrata in Prealps, Lombardia. Gamma 1 (Pizo d'Erna) it is not difficult, but long, with exposition, ladders and 700m od rock climbing. Tibetian brigde and beautiful views are the extraordinary. Full movie, a guide for via ferrata to prepare Yourself better. Enjoy. On our channel more ferratas from Italy, Germany and Czech Republic. La Gamma 1 al Pizzo d'Erna è una delle ferrate più conosciute e più praticate delle Prealpi lombarde. Una Via non difficile tecnicamente, grazie all' aiuto delle tante scale che si trovano lungo il percorso ,ma di impegno fisico piuttosto elevato, dovuto al dislivello da superare(dal parcheggio alla croce in vetta c.a. 700m) , bello il passaggio sul ponte tibetano, si può aggirare tranquillamente tramite sentierino attrezzato con catena. Dal parcheggio della funivia seguire il sentiero n.1 che dopo c.a. 20 min, tramite una mulattiera, troviamo un bivio segnalato con un cartello che indica il percorso per la ferrata, andiamo a sinistra e dopo circa 10 minuti di ripida salita ci troviamo all' attacco della ferrata. Per scendere si può prendere la funivia oppure tramite sentiero n. 5 seguire per il rifugio stoppani e da li al parcheggio della funivia.
