Turn-by-turn directions

From rifugio Pedrotti you go some minutes along path nr. 319 to rifugio Tosa; here you turn left onto path nr. 303, downwards into a valley and continuing at the foot of Brenta Alta. After a short part you get to Busa degli Sfulmini, surrounded by the most beautiful cliffs of the Brenta Dolomites. You continue on the left following the signs for the "Sentiero Felice Spellini": you reach the Southern side of Cima Armi (2590m.), where the via ferrata begins. You walk first along a difficult sideway and then a series of hard ladders, leading to Bocca degli Armi (2749m.), where the ferrata ends. If you go right, along path nr. 323, you go to rifugio Alimonta.
