Summit of this hill

This summit has been climbed in 2 logbooks.

Hill features

This is an unusual via ferrata without any real technical difficulties but with a good amount of exposure. The majority of the climbing takes place on steep ladders and thus there isn't a huge amount of contact time with the rock. However, the situations are superb and the panorama from the summit is undoubtedly one of the best in the Dolomites, providing an excellent vantage point to view the Tre Cime.

The approach is long but this does help alleviate some of the traffic, a necessary characteristic as the descent reverses the route and two way ladder traffic can be tedious at best.

Approach notes

The usual approach is via Rifugio Fonda Savio. The most direct approach to the rifugio is via path 115 from the teleferica carpark.
