    Route very rewarding easy but with a bit of difficulty on the vertical dihedral, always very sticky…. Made on 08/26/2019 in the morning so totally in the shade recommended in this hot period. first section. Towards the end of the second section, some clipping can be "brigands" due to the short tarmac on the rock and the zig-zag path always vertical. of the local CAI.Only negative note the cable is sometimes passed inside the trunks of trees suitably drilled .... I would have preferred more eco-sustainable solutions but many '... .. attention to today the combined via ferrata (optional) on the opposite side (via ferrata of the alpini) is closed due to reclamation and wall consolidation, exactly the one above the hermitage. Do not cover it or in any case before entering open the trip, ask the CAI of Castelnovo Ne Monti.

    Very short and easy via ferrata. Suitable as a first via ferrata for anyone. Very convenient to do in a short time without spending a whole day. Stirrup all the way and well laid cable.

    Ferrata for beginners, short, simple, bracketed in the most difficult stretches and climbable in its entirety. Beautiful the initial slab to do all in adherence. Accessible both uphill and downhill, I recommend combining it with the Alpini ferrata, on the other side of the Stone.

    My first …
    Simple via ferrata and excellent gym to get ready for the most demanding ferrata of the Alpini or more generally on the via ferrata.

    First ferrata after 10 years (10 years ago I had only done 2). Faced with some haste because the days are still short. I was afraid that the sun would go down and, not knowing the environment, I was determined and focused on reaching the goal.
    The first section is practically a path, zero difficulty.
    The second part is a "small gym" of verticality.
    Back the following week and lived with another spirit, I concentrated more on the way of climbing (using much less cable) and on the landscapes practically ignored the previous time.
    Physical commitment between the first and the second time practically halved.
    Very short and simple via ferrata. As a neophyte I didn't have any problems.

    The West Ferrata is a simple and short via ferrata. I liked it because in the same trip I combined the nearby ferrata of the Alpini and this one.

    I walked this recent ferrata once uphill and several times downhill after having traveled the Ferrata degli Alpini on the opposite side. The via ferrata is elementary although vertical. Ideal for starting to become familiar with verticality. Easy to go downhill and therefore easily combinable with each other along the way back. To identify the start, go to the west side of the stone until you reach the path that descends. Note a tree to which the last section of wire rope is connected.
