  • Itinerary info

    The via ferrata starts with a steep part, that can be faced with the help of ladders and ropes until reaching the hillside covered with grass and gravel, where also the connecting trail to Passo Gardena arrives. 

    From here the trail takes you to the left side, at the base of the east wall of tower Exner and continues with a slanting walk towards left by using the great ferrata setup. The route becomes step by step more exposed but at (2350m) gives also the option to reach the Masores flatland and the Rifugio Cavazza at Pisciadù by following the easier upper part of the wide canyon. 

    The ferrata instead goes on almost vertically and after a few ladders sneaks up right below the peak. From here, the exposed passage to the left leads to the famous suspension bridge that enables to pass above the abyss(chasm) and to reach the big terrasse of Masores, a stone's throw away from Rifugio Cavazza and the lake of Pisciadù.
