Description

Rifugio Dibona – Forcella Rozes – Tofana di Rozes – Rifugio Cantore/Forcella Tofana – Rifugio Dibona

A long and strenuous ferrata; until the crossing Tre Dita there are no problems, after that begins the steel part. For the pitch-dark gallery Castelletto of 500m you need in any case a lamp. Sometimes the north side of the Tofana is still covered with snow, in this case you need climbing irons and poles. When the weather changes, you can intermit the route at Tre Dita.

Indication

Red-white-red with the nr. 442, 404 and 403, the via ferrata is signed with red points.

Highlights

The pitch-dark gallery Castelletto; the west wall of the Tofana. Interesting passages above Tre Dita and a magnificent panorama view from the peak also in the Val Travenanzes. Attention the wall is in shadow in the morning!
