Via ferrata Gustavo & Natale Vidi, Brenta Dolomites
A panoramic via ferrata along the upper ledges of Pietra Grande that are exposed but not particularly challenging and run through an area of great natural and geological interest.
An easy via ferrata that may be suitable for families. It is often recommended as an introduction to the world of via ferratas, and it runs along the amazing ledges at the base of the west face of Pietra Grande (2,937m / 9,636 ft) for an enjoyable itinerary along ledges that are not heavily trafficked.
There are some exposed sections, but the trail is generally easy. The via ferrata may be done in either direction, but we recommend doing it from the Grostè Pass towards Rifugio Graffer due to the lower elevation gain. Created in 1969 by two mountain-guide brothers, Natale and Raffaele, and dedicated to their father, the alpine guide Gustavo Vidi. The trail was also dedicated to Natale following his death.
