Via Ferrata Signora delle Acque - Rio Ruzza
A new via ferrata close to the Rio Ruzza waterfall, completed and reopened in August 2019. Now, the route is definitely more difficult and suitable for experienced climbers.
The most recent of all the via ferratas, short but absolutely spectacular. This is the classic modern ferrata where, apart from following the weak points of the wall, there is a concentration on the most spectacular passages, at times, creating these ex novo. It is the only ferrata which cannot be seen from the valley floor ans is only visible once you reach the starting point. It takes you up the ravine of the Rio Ruzza waterfall on the right side of the Ballino Valley.
After a pleasant walk through the woods, you will soon hear the sound of running water, and just around the corner, you come upon the high wall delved by the waterfall. This ferrata, sheer and athletic, climbs at times to the left, then switches to the right of the waterfall, connected by airy, photogenic hanging bridges. After an hour or so you come to the top where a forest trail leads you back down to Ballino.
