Via ferrata

It’s a perfect Via Ferrata for kids or someone who has never done one before and is not especially comfortable with exposure. Rated A (easiest). If you’re a confident climber you will not need to clip in. Still great views and a little exposure. Only about 30% of the route has cables, they are mostly unnecessary for the rest of the route. From the parking lot the peak looks intimidating but at a modest pace you will be at the summit cross in 60-70 min.

Via ferrataGreat!

Amazing Via Ferrata, it’s longer than posted. 11km is what I had it at but very doable for fit individuals. The Via Ferrata is rated as a class B, which I found very accurate. There are 3 sections the the Via Ferrata, the first is very easy and short. Good intro to this type of climbing and you can take a trail back down from the end of the first section if you don’t feel comfortable. Next next section is harder but still only a B and very well secured. The last section is the hardest, just under class C in my opinion. It looks harder than it is. You can skip this and take a trail to the hut if you’re not feeling confident, follow the sign that says easy climb. The last section is very steep but well secured, here you will find a steel ladder then a small suspension bridge, this is the end of the Via Ferrata. 15 min hike to the hut from here, grab a beer and follow 666 to 666a back to the car park. The top of the decent is steep but good cables to hang onto. Clipping in is not necessary and if it’s crowded you will annoy everyone by creating a bottle neck.

This was an excellent trail and via ferrata with magnificent views and exposed parts. We did it in reverse as suggested by summitpost. The part after Passo Maroccaro was a little sketchy with very steep sections and snowy patches. But the bridge, tunnel and wooden paths were a sight to behold! Would definitely recommend.

percorso breve e non impegnativo per ammirare il POnte del diavolo, attrazione cara a tutti i torinesi. il percorso base, molto ben tracciato, è relativamente accessibile, se si escludono carrozzine e passeggini. la deviazione per la Madonna dei Caduti delle valli, è impegnativa e deve essere affrontata con attenzione: scarpe adatte, forma fisica adeguata, e niente bambini. in alcuni punto infatti, vi è pericolo di caduta. paraltro, finita la salita, il panorama SUL ponte del diavolo ripaga degli sforzi

Ein toller Klettersteig, anspruchsvoll aber nicht zu schwer. Achtung der Klettersteig ist oft ausgesetzt und steil, deshalb nur mit Sicherungsgurt und Karabinern gehen! Oben angekommen hat man einen tollen Ausblick über die Dolomiten. Der Rückweg führt durch eine steile Geröllscharte (kein Klettersteig mehr) bis zum Ausgangspunkt des Klettereteigs und von dort zurück zum Parkplatz.

C’était notre première via ferrata et on a adoré le sentiero dei fiori. Le début de l’ascension s’est fait dans la neige, mais après ça allait.

On a fait cette boucle avec le retour du rifugio Locatelli par la via ferrata Lucas-Innerkofler. Magnifique randonnée et points de vus extraordinaires à partir du Monte Paterno.

Oh yeah! This is a must do. Grab your helmet, harness, and clips for some amazing views. The cable makes its pretty safe, but it's not easy. Yet a decent climber free solo this. The hike down was more sketchy with all the loose gravel.

Great Ferrata route. Was by myself all day. I did this in late June/almost early July. Not a ton of snow on the first half but the final ascent is through a step scree/snow field from the false summit. Descent was through multiple feet/meters of snow. I definitely did not expect to see as much snow as I did so please be prepared with gaiters! Beautiful route, but make sure you are prepared for 9-10 hours round trip time - so should only be taken by those who don’t mind heights and have enough fitness.

Great hike up to via ferrata. Beautiful views, some exposure. We did the entire hike and via ferrata. There is some traversing and down climbing involved. It's a busy trail and climb.

This via ferrata is not in Friuli Venezia Giulia but in Veneto. Cortina d'Ampezzo is a town in Veneto

This trail is fairly rocky. A bit of exposure in places. One short section of cable towards the end. A longer section of cable a bit higher up. I stopped at this point due to a lack of harness and carabiner. Trail is well marked and easy to follow.
