Three Day Via Ferrata Tour in the Dolomites around Sesto
Breathtaking scenery, rugged rock faces, smooth plateaus, captivating peaks, and impressively fissures and crevasses make the Dolomites of Sesto an ideal place for mountaineering enthusiasts! On this 3-day trek you will gain a real understanding of the Dolomites of Sesto!
Travel day: Arrive in Sesto, briefing, and equipment-check.
Day 1: Arrive at the Rifugio Auronzo (2,320 m). Then hike to Forcella di Lavaredo (2,454 m), and on to Forcella dei Camosci via secured ledges. From Forcella dei Camosci the climb continues to the summit of Monte Paternos (2,744 m) with its stunning views of the Three Peaks! Then descend back down to the Forcella and continue on the “Via delle forcelle” (via ferrata) to Rifugio Pian di Cengia (2,528 m) and stay there overnight. If we are very fast and reach the hut early, we also hike up Punta Fiscalina (2,677 m).
Day 2: From Rifugio Pian di Cengia it’s a ten minute walk to the via ferrata Forcella Fiscalina, which takes about forty minutes to cross. We then continue to the entrance of the new via ferrata Severino Casara. Via two short but bracing narrow secured ledges, and across two spectacular Tibetan hanging bridges we circumnavigate Cima Dodici. We arrive at our next accommodation, the Rifugio Carducci (2,297 m), late afternoon.
Day 3: In the morning we continue onward via Forcella Giralba (2,328 m) to the entrance of the via ferrata “Strada degli Alpini”. Like Monte Paterno, this is a relic constructed during WWI by the Italian Alpini. After the war it was converted into a via ferrata. We hike across ledges surrounded by 400 steep cliffs, and through isolated icefields to Forcella Undici (2,726 m).
From there we descend into Val Fiscalina.
