    Exciting for the show! There are 3 overhanging sections where you do a little work. A quickdraw in case of tiredness is essential

    Ferrata made on 04/27/2019
    The via ferrata seemed to me less difficult than I expected, however it is very vertical, panoramic and athletic but not technical, essentially a series of brackets, with many overhangs (negative slopes).
    Before the end a small Tibetan bridge.
    It is necessary to have strength on your arms and overcome the most difficult stretches without lingering too much, so as not to get tired and risk being stuck. Useful a lanyard to rest in the most difficult or simply to take pictures comfortably.

    Convenient parking Casa Serena, short and via ferrata approach that starts immediately very vertical.
    The verticality remains for most of the ferrata, alternating with ledges, traverses, humps, suspension bridge, making the whole quite varied.

    The verticality is compensated by an almost excellent tooling, sometimes I would say even almost excessive, which makes it necessary to climb only in very few points; funny the slabs that describe the various traits, as well as "embellishments" and "characteristic objects" that are found along the points of the route:
    - Traverse of the trembling butt
    - Fig tree grotto
    - Ledge of the 4000
    - The humps of the thrill
    - Ledge of the bell
    - Bridge away with the wind
    - The finish line
    Fun and great panoramic views of Valsesia and the guaranteed group of Rosa.

    The only additional note is that, having covered it two days after heavy rains, we found two fairly slippery stretches and subjected to a discreet dripping during the ascent (Grotta del Fico area until reaching the Gobbe del shiver, vertical zone before Cengia della Campana) .

    Surely you need to be trained and accustomed to overhanging passages, but otherwise it is feasible without any particular problems.
    Brackets and cables accompany the entire via ferrata making it not very climbable.
    The view and the various rest points are very beautiful.

    Very vertical and exposed via ferrata, not suitable for everyone, but still well aided and with some points for breaks. Beautiful view of the pink mountain.

    D / Difficult; Beautiful, demanding, exposed, but well protected; overhanging passages (humps of the camel), aerial traverses (trembling butt), a bridge; it is to be done in optimal physical conditions; 5 hours per complete tour combined with the Partusacc via ferrata, with a quiet pace, stops and photos.

    Athletic, vertical and exposed. I liked it alot. Let's say a great workout for other routes. Combined with the nearby Partusac

    Falconera is an athletic ferrata. Little or nothing climbing has in its 3 or 4 overhanging sections its main characteristic as well as in its constant exposure. You need good arm strength to climb at least a couple of overhanging sections. A quickdraw or sling may be useful to get married. Combined with the nearby Partusac.
