Along the route, at the height of 2922 meters, is located the Capanna degli Alpini Battaglione Fenestrelle, an original and well restored hut of the italian alpine troops, fighting in altitude in the Tofane Group during the First World War. Now it is a wooden emergency bivouac with 7 bed, embedded in a niche of the rocky wall below the North ridge of Tofana di Dentro.
This Via Ferrata has no technical difficulties, however, route finding in the mist was a concern as there are times when the path changes to the other side of the ridge, and to miss this would be to start off down a steep gully in the wrong direction. We hurried our pace to keep sight of the party in front of us. In the lower section, just before the wonderful rock window, there is a section which is so narrow and so eroded and so friable that it is terrifying. The exposure and drop off is considerable and this section has no wire. Guide books do not mention this.
Extreme Adventure 🙂 I am lucky to found a Great Traveler and Adventurist 🙂
