Description

Engage in a challenging 1-day climb on the Tomaselli via ferrata in Passo Falzarego, a high mountain pass at 2,105 meters, which connects the commune of Agordo with Cortina, that lies in the heart of the Dolomite mountains.

Its good quality rock and scenic location makes this via ferrata a beautiful climb. The via ferrata climbs to the top of Punta Sud, one of the summits of the Fanes Group.

The mountain pass of Falzarego, meaning False King in Italian, refers to the local legend of a greedy king who attempted to betray his own people for even more gold. Yet his pact with his enemy backfired and was turned to stone. His petrified face apparently set in stone along the rock face of the Lagazuoi Piccolo mountain.

The legendary landscape combines with the history of one of Europe’s darkest hours. At the beginning of the Tomaselli via ferrata we will encounter the abandoned trails and trenches of the First World War, the scars along the mountainside.

As for the climbing level, this is one of the more difficult via ferratas of the Dolomite mountains given its steep incline and lack of artificial holds. This, combined with its high exposure makes the via ferrata a challenging climb.

Get in touch now to reserve your place on a full day of climbing in Passo Falzarego on the Tomaselli via ferrata. This challenging climb mixes good-quality terrain with a landscape full of history and legend.

About the guide

guide profile img

I was born and raised in Campitello, in Val di Fassa. I am a ski instructor and mountain guide.
My parents have always practiced mountaineering, both for leisure and business, and the apple doesn't fall far from the tree! Skiing and climbing were my favourite activities growing up.
As the years went by, I became more and more skilled and experienced under the watch of my father, both in techniques and safety measures. I learned the craft of mountain guide and ski instructor from him, since when his clients or students agreed, I would join them in the mountain.
But the true passion started when I moved to Tione for my studies.
I became ski instructor at 19 and mountain guide at 21.
