Breathtaking landscapes that combine daunting towers, impressive cliffs and beautiful meadows make the Sesto Dolomites an ideal spot for Via Ferrata. During this 3-day itinerary you will learn about this stunning mountain range.

We will start our trip at Auronzo Refuge (2,320 meters) from where we will climb to the summit of Monte Paterno (2,744m). From the top, you will enjoy spectacular views of the famous Tre Cime di Lavaredo.

During our 3 days together, we will explore new via ferratas, such as Severino Casara. This route is made up of narrow but assured roads, difficult passes and the crossing of two spectacular Tibetan bridges. We will also walk around the Cima Dodici. And finally, on the last day, we will face many steep walls and passes through some icy trails.

We will spend two nights in mountain huts, the first one in Pian di Cengia Refuge (2,528 meters) and the second one in Carducci Refuge (2,297 meters).

If you are ready to walk through routes opened during the First World War, please request to book this trip. I can guarantee an unforgettable experience!

Meeting point





Day 1: Thursday

Meeting at Sesto, briefing, material control.

Day 2: Friday

Ride by car to Auronzo Refuge (2,320 m.), from there we walk towards the Forcella di Lavaredo (2,454 m.). By secured sails we climb on the Forcella del Camoscio and then climb on the top of Monte Paterno (2,744 m.). There is a spectacular view of the famous Tre Cime. The descent brings us back to the Forcella del Camoscio and via Forcella di Lavaredo (via ferrata) we arrive at Pian di Cengia Refuge (2,528 m.), where we sleep. If we can reach the shelter in time, we can also climb on Croda Fiscalina (2,677 m.).

From Pian di Cengia Refuge we reach the Via Ferrata to Fiscalino pass in 10 minutes: it takes about 40 minutes to make it. After that, we walk to the access of the new Severino Casara via ferrata. On narrow but assured roads, difficult but short passes and crossing two spectacular Tibetan bridges, we ride around the Cima Dodici. In the late afternoon we reach our second accommodation at the Carducci Refuge (2,297 m.).

Day 4: Sunday

In the morning we go to the access road of the Strada degli Alpini, passing the Forcella Giralba (2,328 m.). This route was traced by the alpine Italians in the First World War, as well as that of Monte Paterno, and later it was transformed into a ferrata. We walk through many steep walls and pass through some icy trails to the Forcella Undici (2,726 m.). From there we go down to Val Fiscalina.
