The via ferrata unfolds between chimneys, gullies and natural ledges, starting from the Val d'Adige valley bottom and climbing along the sheer wall that culminates in the Altopiano di Favogna. The climb is not technically difficult, but should not be underestimated due to the many exposed sections and the physical effort required by the considerable difference in height (about 900m/2950ft). It is an entirely vertical, non-stop climb where you can hardly catch your breath, with many sections equipped with steel cable, vertical ladders, aiders, alternating with a steep path through the mountain scrub. Not recommended as a "first ferrata" for beginners.

Safety information

Please note that the practicability of the itineraries in a mountain environment is strictly linked to the contingent conditions and is therefore influenced by natural phenomena, environmental changes and weather conditions. For this reason, the information contained in this page may have changed. Before leaving for a tour, make sure the path you will approach is still accessible by contacting the owner of the mountain hut, the alpine guides or the visitor centres of the nature parks, the info offices of the local tourist board.

Equipment

You will need a ferrata equipment set (harness, carabiners, shock absorber, helmet), a good training, firm feet and a head for heights.

Turn-by-turn directions

Outward journey : a fter a 10 minute climb you get to the start of the ferrata, a narrow vertical chimney about 10 metres high and probably the hardest climb of the whole ferrata . There are however lots of holds, a safety cable and a few aiders. After this first difficult stretch you climb a not so steep couloir and emerge into a coppice wood where you can enjoy the first Val d'Adige views. The trail climbs a few rocks with a number of exposed sections, easy to overcome, and then gets to another equipped section, a vertical wall about 10 metres high with aiders but no steel cable. The absence of a safety cable and the lopsided aiders call for attention. You continue on easy rocks for a little while, then the path leads under a vertical wall: you walk along it briefly and arrive at a gully where a long vertical ladder with steel cable goes over a drop. Continue into a   little, not too steep, valley climbing easy rocks. To get out of the valley, however, you will have to climb a vertical section, after which you come out on a sort of balcony. Next comes a climb into the wood, steep and hard, where you can see a big rock tower with the last wall to be tackled. But first you must walk up into the wood on a zigzag path for quite a while, going over several crags and then slipping into a large ledge under the wall. The way out from the large traverse is very exposed. Continue to climb on large rocky steps until the path levels out in a wooded valley. The climb is now over and from the edge of the valley you can enjoy a wide view of the Val d'Adige.

Return journey : At the end of the via ferrata you get to the Putzwald Wood, and go across it to reach the village of Favogna. Two are the possible return routes: either via Roveré della Luna or via Magré. In the first case, once in Favogna you take path No. 502 (to Malga Kraun), then descend through Val dei Molini to Roveré and walk on the wide provincial road back to the departure point. In the second case, you go in the opposite direction on path No. 3, beautiful at first but then a little boring, just a lane with very steep sections going down to the lovely village of Magré; from here you can walk back to the car on the wide provincial road. In both cases, if you have two cars you can save yourself the walk on the road.

Getting there

Between Roveré della Luna and Magré, along the Strada del Vino at 226 m/740ft altitude (few parking spaces)
Arrival by train, car, foot or bike
