5 via ferratas in the Sexten Dolomites not to be missed

5 via ferratas in the Sexten Dolomites not to be missed

Erected among the impervious rocks of the Sexten mountains during the Great War to supply the troops engaged on the front lines, the spectacular via ferratas are among the most popular destinations in the Eastern Alps and offer breathtaking views of the Three Peaks country. The numerous via ferratas around Sesto are quite heterogeneous and differ in length, exposure and physical fitness required. Although not all of them are suitable for sports climbing, the vertical routes secured by wire ropes, ladders and bridges, of Monte Paterno, the Toblin Tower and the Strada degli Alpini, make these routes among the most popular with beginners and experts alike. The extraordinary view of the Alpine landscape surrounding the Three Peaks enriches the climbing experience with a sense of wonder that fills the soul. A helmet, sturdy shoes and protection from the elements are indispensable equipment that cannot be missing from a climbing kit, essential even for the simplest via ferrata routes in the Sexten Dolomites. A unique experience, especially for history-loving mountaineers, is to retrace the Dolomite front of the Great War on the Monte Paterno via ferratas, the Toblin Tower and the Strada degli Alpini. In general, however, the entire region offers mountaineering enthusiasts the opportunity to traverse more than 40 via ferratas of all levels between the Monte Croce Pass in Sesto and the Falzarego Pass in Cortina d'Ampezzo.
