An outdoor experience somewhere between climbing and hiking. The via ferratas are located in fascinating and wild places, the routes can be physically demanding and offer a strong emotional involvement, stimulated by exposure and management of one's own safety.
A mountain guide will lead you on this short but overall physically intense and demanding via ferrata, guiding you in technique and helping you to manage your safety. This experience is suitable for beginners or those who have already tried other via ferratas but want to try out new routes and experience them together with a group of newbie friends.
Completing a via ferrata provides considerable inner gratification and contributes to the strengthening of one's self-esteem; if carried out with friends, it fosters greater team spirit and the strengthening of the relationship between the participants, as well as experimentation with the concept of collaboration.
The start of the ferrata is reached after about an hour's walk and leads to the Pirlo refuge where you can have lunch. The total height difference is about 600 metres, of which about 150 metres are on the ferrata, which is short but mainly vertical. From the refuge, descend along a path and partly along the same old mule track used on the way up.
