The Dolomites, which many people regard as the most beautiful mountains in world, are an awesome challenge that climbers and mountaineers shouldn't miss. Vertical rock faces and steep towers guarantee plenty of climbing challenges. Doubtless, one of the most famous fixed-rope routes in the Dolomites is the Pisciadù via ferrata (also known as the Via Ferrata Tridentina) in the Sella massif. The via ferrata, easily reachable from Colfosco, has some intriguing vertical sections and a suspension bridge.

Turn-by-turn directions

Set off from the large car park just outside Colfosco (on the road towards the Gardena Pass), above a wooded slope. After a short section secured with cables and a short walk, you reach the start.

There are fixed cables to help you overcome the rocky obstructions in the forest. Head between two massive blocks of rock and continue on the trail to the bottom of the Sella massif. Climb up the cable-secured route to the Torre Exner mountain, which you leave at the top via a little suspension bridge. A fixed-cable route and a trail lead up to the Pisciadù refuge.

The descent is via trail no. 666 (the normal route to the Rifugio Pisciadù hut) through the Val Setus valley and straight down to the car park.
