The Via delle Bocchette in the Brenta Dolomites

A series of panoramic via ferratas along the ledges of the Brenta Dolomites

A route that crosses the entire Brenta Dolomites, covering panoramic via ferratas every day. They’re never too difficult, often with horizontal development, where the most vertical sections are tackled with long metal stairs. The environment is that of the high mountains, on the edge of 3000 meters, where the greatest dangers are weather conditions and the presence of snow and ice. Depending on the conditions and the period, crampons may be needed to overcome small glaciers or snow-covered gullies.
