This via ferrata is a classic in the Dolomites and is framed by rugged walls and towers with magnificent views. The via ferrata is relatively short with difficult Alpine passages that require Alpine experience.

Es wäre doch angebracht, wenn die Wegbeschreibung dem der Tour hinterlegten GPS- Track entsprechen würde. Ich meine ein bisschen mehr Sorgfalt wäre sehr wünschenswert.

Sehr schöner Klettersteig mit klasse Szeneriewechsel am ende des Klettersteigs. Warum er als geschlossen angegeben wird kann ich nicht beurteilen. Bei meiner Begehung war alles m. E. alles in Ordnung.
