The Ferrata di Giorrè winds along high walls that delimit the high floor of Giorrè around the Sardinian village of Cargeghe. The via ferrata follows a route through ledges, crossings and vertical sections that are particularly exposed in a surprising context.
Attach the cable to a wide ledge and go around one edge and then back to the ledge. You come off the cable going down a few meters on a steep path, continue to the right and soon you come to a wall where you continue diagonally with the help of some metal brackets. Now continue horizontally with cambra to support the feet in strong exposure until they get around an edge. We now enter the most characteristic section of the via ferrata: a dihedral that we face first horizontally reaching the inner edge and then downhill. Continue around an exposed edge and then reaching a ledge. Continue along the ledge on variable widths until you reach a succession of exposed traverses, which are never difficult. The ferrata continues with this succession of ledges and traverses for a wide stretch until the end of the cable (1h 15 'from the start).
Report nearing completion.
Giorrè's ferrata is characterized by a strong exposure and limited difficulty. In fact it is a series of ledges and traverses more or less exposed with a couple of vertical sections that are never difficult thanks to the abundant metal brackets. The Ferrata di Giorrè is generally closed in the periods of April and May to protect the nesting of the local fauna.
