9 Via Ferrata itineraries

Via Ferrata in the Small Dolomites and Pasubio

The so-called Small Dolomites belong to the mountainous group of the Vicentine Pre-Alps and are part of it among others the Pasubio, the Carega and Gramolon on which Via Ferratas are installed.

They have been the subject of fierce fighting in the WWI and the remains are still clearly visible along the routes. Their low altitude and relative proximity to the plain is the cause of a microclimate where fog is often present.

Below you find 9 reviews of via ferrata that develop in the Small Dolomites, in Carega and Pasubio.

Difficult itinerary

Ferrata del Vajo Scuro

Review of Ferrata del Vajo Scuro and the new variant Lontelovare. Long and varied itinerary that includes many aided sections, some of which are demanding. A rather steep approach and a long downhill walk characterize the trip. Pay attention to the not optimal marking of the path after the Vajo Scuro and for the return.

Moderately difficult itinerary

Falcipieri aided via ferrata

Review of Falcipieri Aided path at 5 Cime del Pasubio. The itinerary is long, never too difficult but always quite exposed. The route maintains a mountaineering character, while remaining moderately difficult, with several sections of free climbing both uphill and downhill. Places of strong historical interest both uphill and along the way back through the Road of the 52 Tunnels.

Moderately difficult itinerary

Ferrata Viali at the Gramolon

Review of Ferrata Viali that rises a gully under the Monte Gramolon. The ferrata is varied, of medium difficulty with some more challenging and athletic passages. Itinerary with rather short approach and return that extends at low altitude. Pay attention to the hot summer months.
