This short route close to Rif. Averau (2413m) is ideal for completing the classic trip round Averau and Nuvolau, or as a half day outing. From the peak of Averau, which dominates the horizon between Passo Falzarego and Passo Giau, there is a magnificent view towards Monte Pelmo, the Civetta, Antelao, Sorapis and the not far-off Tofana di Rozes. From Rifugio Averau follow the marked path northwards up a tiring scree slope to the start of the ferrata beneath Averau’s northeast gully. Follow the ascent route back down to the starting point at Rif. Averau.

REST STOPS

Fedare Mountain Hut, Nuvolau Mountain Hut, Averau Mountain Hut,  Scoiattoli Mountain Hut

Notes

This short via ferrata is not difficult but nevertheless not to be underestimated as there are some vertical sections equipped with fixed cables. A good confidence builder for beginners.

Equipment

Normal via ferrata kit.
