    The hike is indeed very demanding, but the satisfaction is so great in the end. The via ferrata is beautiful because, apart from two short sections, there is only the steel cable to make sure: in this way, in my opinion, the hiker is stimulated to climb without the aid of artificial "aids" (just put some in the really difficult points). The view enjoyed during the ascent is nothing short of breathtaking. The cable and the various elements are in excellent condition apart from the section on the large inclined slab (at the beginning), where the cable is cut (landslide?); fortunately, however, it is possible to proceed in complete safety until the next stretch is resumed. As for the return, I did it following the "path" of the Pradacetti: it is not a real path but a "descent line" marked with red signs (very faded and not always visible from above ) and several ometti. I think the descent, exhausting, is paradoxically more difficult than the ferrata itself. The only recommendation I would like to say is: get off that route only in case of good visibility and with dry ground, it is not possible to make sure in any way (especially if you are alone!) And the verticality is impressive. Surely one of the wildest environments of all the Apuan Alps!

    The via ferrata is all resting on a huge slab… .no difficulty except in the more vertical end… I am tall and the start of the cable is very low so many stretches on all fours…. To me personally the ferrata did not like much but the overall hike is very beautiful and long

    Long and demanding trip. The via ferrata is long and never too difficult even if the marble is not always easy to climb. The path back to the Pradacetti is difficult.
