The “Strobel” is a classic and highly popular via ferrata that takes a logical line up wide ledges through the west face of the Punta Fiames, past exposed but well-equipped sections.
The ‘Tomaselli’ takes an exposed but almost entirely equipped line up the SW face of the Punta Fanes Sud, the first tower on the Cresta di Fanes.
The Alpini Via Ferrata is situated on the South face of the Piramide Col dei Bos and is equipped with metal roping and innovative anti-fall cones as well as pitons.
This beautiful, tough ferrata crosses the exposed southwest face of the Col Rosà, the isolated rocky peak between the Tofane and Pomagagnon.
The Ferrata Formenton is in fact a beautiful traverse that starts from the summit of Tofana di Mezzo, which is reached via cable car. By ascending the Tofana di Mezzo’s south face one can access the less visited Tofana di Dentro.
This very particular remnant of the First World War is completely equipped with cables and leads through the famous winding tunnel.
The ferrata leads up the highest of the three Tofane. When joined to the Giuseppe Olivieri ferrata at Punta Anna it makes up a long and difficult, but highly satisfying traverse for the well-trained.
This is a very interesting and easy roundtrip, well equipped with cables wherever necessary. An excellent entry point from Cortina to the splendid Valle di Fanes, the ferrata can be carried out in half a day.
This ascent, almost entirely equipped with cables, follows the steep southern arête up Punta Anna, the large outcrop that looks onto the Tofana di Mezzo.
Cortina is famous for its equipped mountain routes, known as vie ferrate. And for the summer 2015 season another one is added to the list: the new Maria e Andrea Ferrari via ferrata.
This short but panoramic itinerary follows the crest which, at 3000m, runs from Forcella Staunies to the summit of Cristallo di Mezzo. BEAUTY: ***
A new, short via ferrata which replaces the original one along the gully which is now closed for safety.
The actual via ferrata is not particularly long and traverses the north and north east faces of the Forame mountain chain, a minor western outcrop of the Cristallo group.
This Ferrata route traverses the Crepe di Faloria face, below the path of the cable car leading to Mount Faloria.
Monte Paterno is an excellent observation point for the impressive north faces of the Tre Cime, symbol of alpinism not only in the Dolomites but all over the world.
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.
