Like the trails no. 1, 4 and 5, this Alpine ridgeway goes through the eastern Dolomites and offers irresistible views of the magnificent mountains all the way along. Most sections of this trail are either more difficult or longer and more hard work than Alpine ridgeway no. 1 and 2. In addition to the considerable differences in altitude that have to be overcome within short sections, the route also includes some steep trails that are secured with cables and in some cases are quite exposed, with short climbing sections up to Grade II level of difficulty. There are easier alternatives to these sections.
