Description 

Via Ferrata often climb ridges or sections of terrain that do not fit into a single mountain listing. For that reason this section is organized for climbers to list Via Ferrata within this group of mountains even if they ascend one particular mountain. Listing them here allows other users to visit one section and view all the listed Ferrata for a general mountain group.

You will need to read each specific route description to discover how to get there and off. You may also need a map of some sort to find the start of the routes or the ski lift location that accesses the route. Hopefully the authors provide adequate information to assist you.

Note to those adding New Ferrata Routes to the site: For climbers, the most "difficult" aspect of Ferrata is finding the start and understanding the descent. Please provide details regarding best place to park, how to access the Ferrata and most importantly the options and details related to the descent.

Please see the main Dolomites page where a more in-depth discussion of Via Ferrata exists.

This is the oldest Ferrata in the Dolomites – established in 1912. It is approached from the top of Sella pass and climbs up the back side of Piz Ciavazes on the NW face, then traverses north via trails across multiple summits on the western side of the Sella plateau. Eventually the path will wrap back around east, south and finally southwest along the base of the impressive Sass Pordoi west face depositing you back on the road leading up to Passo Sella. While there is some great, steep climbi...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
