ViaFerrata Tips and Tricks

The zipline is not equipped... bring your own equipment. The rock is friable, wearing a helmet is mandatory (as it is, in fact, for all via ferratas). Bring your gloves, as always in the case of rock fall.

Via Ferrata 

1st part
The first part lets you learn how to use the lanyards as it has intermediary anchor points for extra security.
Fairy difficult - total length: 100m - 1 5m ladder - 1 8m hanging bridge.

2nd part
As you follow the small path you meet up with the second part which is characterized by horizontal progression over a series of ledges.
Easy - total length: 80m - 1 5m footbridge.

3rd part
When you are about to reach the 3rd part, the 2nd part gives you the option of an easier variant which goes up sideways on a little ramp at the end of the footbridge.
Before crossing the footbridge you can go directly to the 3rd part via a short overhanging climb and a horizontal traverse of a very steep section under the overhangs, and then by crossing a depression on a 15m rope bridge (2 cables).

There is a small 20m zipline at the end of the via ferrata (a pulley is mandatory).
Difficult - total length: 90m - 1 12m rope bridge - 1 20 zipline - 1 5m rope bridge.

 

Way back

Pretty intuitive. No need to draw a map.
