Dolomiti senza confini: 2 countries - 9 stages - 12 via ferratas - 17 refuges - 108 kilometers

This stage takes us on two beautiful via ferratas and mostly directly along the Carnic ridge that forms the border between Italy and Austria. Ferrata del Camoscio and Corrado D'Ambros are the epitome of the path without borders.

Very impressive stage directly along the border with 2 beautiful via ferratas.  The Ferrata del Camoscio up Monte Palombino impresses with its wild landscape. Descend westwards to the Forcella Palombino and follow the border towards the via ferrata Corrado D’Ambros, that symbolises the idea of the project like no other.

Surefootedness is vital on this stage because a large part of the path is very exposed and ropes are available only at the absolute necessary sections.  Rope protection exits on only approx. 20% of the path. Compared to the first stages you will meet only very few other climbers here. All in all a technically not too demanding but very impressive stage.

Turn-by-turn directions

From the hut Porzehütte path 172 takes you up Forcella Dignas. From there you climb westwards for a few m elevation gain and then downwards on an old military road to a 180° bend. There you find a sign "Cima Palombino, Ferrata Camoscio".

 

Via ferrata Camoscio: Difficulty A/B, mostly A

Across scree-covered fields you reach the foot of the east face, where the via ferrata begins with a long westward crossing. Across scree-covered rock ledges and ravines you continue up to the southern ridge. Across Alpine grass you continue via the southern flank up towards the summit (2600m). From the summit the Austriaweg path takes you down in a westward direction. Descend via the northern rock ledges and a few small rocky steps down to Forcella Palombino (2362m). - 3 hrs.

The route continues on path 160, an old military path, on the south side past Kesselhöhe. It is also possible to go directly to Cima Vallona via Kesselhöhe. Then continue across not too difficult terrain on path No. 191 to Cima Vallona (2532m). You can also climb the Cima Vallona on its south side. A short descent into the gorge and you stand before the via ferrata Corrado D‘Ambros. - 1 hr.

 

Via ferrata Corrado D‘Ambros: Section B/C mostly A

You are always directly on the crest and walk westwards across ridges and jagged rocks.  After a brief ascent through tunnels, the path takes us along First World War caverns.  Continue across a ledge and a ladder steeply up to the ridge. Across a scree-filled draw you climb on the south-side secured with ropes and then descend westwards on rocky ground to the next crest. The jagged peaks on the crest are partly crossed, partly climbed around.  From the last jagged peak you get to Filmoorhöhe  and then on the hiking trail on to the hut Filmoor-Standschützenhütte. - 2 hrs

The via ferrata can also be climbed on the north side, whereby you get directly to the hut Filmoor-Standschützenhütte  in a westerly direction.

Total 6 hrs.
