An extremely attractive and demanding climb through the north face of the Torre di Toblin. Not too long and above all hugely enjoyable. If the via ferrata were longer, it would be classified as difficult. At its current length, it offers a varied practice climb for experienced mountaineers in a spectacular setting. Fitter climbers can combine the climb with the Innerkofler via ferrata on the Paternkofel.


Characteristics: Short, very steep and exposed climb, mostly secured with ladders. The bottoms of the ladders are sometimes almost overhanging, so strong arms are required. Because of its length, the via ferrata is ideal for practising and honing your skills before you make the leap to more difficult climbs. Experience, arm strength and a head for heights are necessary for the especially exposed sections!

Access: Go along the wide gravel path to the Paternsattel, then continue to the Drei-Zinnen-Hütte (2405m), open from the start of June until the end of September. The marked ascent (red) to the Torre di Toblin begins behind the hut. Cross it on the southern side to reach the start of the climb at the foot of the north face.

Technical details: A short, extremely steep via ferrata, completely secured with steel ropes and ladders, overhangs to get on some the ladders, very exposed.

Via ferrata in detail: 50% steel ropes, 50% ladders

Overall climb: 390m altitude gain, 2:15-2:30 hours.

Ascent: 280m altitude gain, 1:30 hours.

Via ferrata: 110m altitude gain, 30-40 minute.

Descent: From the summit across the north-east side (Feldkurat-Hosp-Steig, marked with red triangles). Some unsecured, exposed sections, partly easy climbing, partly exposed. The descent is mostly well-secured with steel ropes. 45 minutes to the Drei-Zinnen-Hütte.
