    Very beautiful via ferrata with beautiful passages and interesting progressions. Some points need a little more physique. Towards the end there is an overhanging wall where the change of the carabiners is not very comfortable. The view over the Dolo valley during the ascent is rewarding.
    The approach path is steep so measure out the energy.

    The approach, a steep path mostly on a stony ground has almost put me in crisis. I don't find the ferrata itself particularly satisfying, the last overhanging wall has drained my last energy. The exit in the middle of a wood can be regenerating in the summer but it takes away the satisfaction of a peak and a panorama that can be worth the effort.

    Very "technical" via ferrata. The sandstone is excellent and although smooth it still offers a good "grip" to the boots. It must be tackled by not pulling on arms but on the contrary looking for all the holds and supports that sandstone climbing (although it is a ferrata) requires, especially when crossing slabs. Beautiful the initial dihedral and the "key" passage that I faced starting immediately from the right towards the edge ignoring in fact the two brackets on the left. As always 10 and praise to the builders.

    If you want to continue the hike, at the crossroads with the two downhill paths, continue straight (Cai white and red signs) up to Monte Ravino (1882 m asl approx. 1h 15 ′) from where you can enjoy a panorama that it covers almost all of the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines.

    Traveled date 11.05.2019 Assuming that my experience is at the beginning, I find this via ferrata generally on average difficult if not in a point (practically at the end of the route) that requires physical effort to pass a short vertical exposed passage where it is necessary to study well the footholds available and this makes it not easy; however beautiful and satisfying.
    From the point of view of the trip, apart from some foreshortenings on the underlying town of Civago it is not particularly panoramic, even when you reach the end of the ferrata you find yourself inside the wood where there are many possibilities for beautiful trips to reach panoramic points of the Appennino Reggiano, but with several hours of travel.

    Ferrata not simple and alternating between walls and stretches of walk… .the beginning seems easy but the last wall is overhanging and with a key passage in negative is not easy even if clamped… beautiful the forest on top

    The approach is quite tiring going up a steep stony ground. The two-thirds ferrata is of medium difficulty with not too demanding passages. The last part changes gear and has two overhanging sections of which the second is selective. Once the overhang is finished, climb up a very exposed vertical smooth slab where it will be impossible to climb and proceed in traction. Compared to the first time I did it, 3 brackets were added to the challenging overhang that allow the feet to rest and therefore significantly reduce the difficulty. My side, a pity since reducing the difficulty also reduces the palatability of the route.
