  • Go on a challenging via ferrata in the spectacular Dolomites
  • Enjoy amazing views from the top of the Cima Fanes Sud
  • Climb along an experienced IFMGA-certified local guide


The Cesco Tomaselli via ferrata belongs to the history of the challenging ferratas of the Dolomites. From the Falzarego Pass, it reaches the Cima Fanis Sud (2980m) following a path between smooth slabs, steps and suspended ledges.

This via ferrata is rated as “difficult”. The path involves an elevation gain of 400 meters, so you need to have a good fitness level and previous via ferrata experience to join it.

At at 8.30 we depart from the Lagazuoi cable car to the Falzarego Pass. After a short briefing we will check the equipment and then the via ferrata adventure begins. We will be back to Falzarego Pass at about 17.00h. The cable car takes us around the Forcella Grande, which is reached in about 30 minutes. With our harnesses on we start our via ferrata. 

From the top of the aerial Cima Fanes we will get a spectacular panorama views over the Dolomites. Then we will begin the descent, following a simpler equipped route that in about 30 minutes leads us to the Fanes saddle (2820m), and from there to the Falzarego Pass. 

So if you are in for this demanding via ferrata, just send us a request and book your trip! Come join us for a great climbing experience in the Dolomites!

About the guide

I have been a mountain guide since 1990. I started going to the mountains since I was very young. I was a competitive skier and covered most of the most challenging classic routes of the Dolomites and the Mont Blanc. I am an IFMGA-certified guide and I have also worked as a mountain rescue volunteer and helicopter rescue technician in 1985. Some say that my greatest gift is patience and practicity. Personally, I look for a good and harmonic relationship with people, to allow my clients to enjoy a satisfying mountain experience.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
