Via ferrata Croda Rossa: B

Not too difficult via ferrata that can be used on the way to Croda Rossa. Alternatively, a diversion via Castelliere is also possible. The route via Castelliere does, however, not save much time. 

 

Via ferrata Costoni di Croda Rossa: A,B

Long and popular ascent with steep climb (ladders) at the start of the route. Plenty of walking terrain, in a few places also in exposed terrain. Surefootedness and plenty of Alpine experience are required. At the northern flank of the ascent you frequently still find hard old snow. Easy but long via ferrata with only a few exposed sections and a long ladder at the access. The remaining ascent is well secured where necessary.

 

Descent using via ferrata Mario Zandonella: B,C

Impressive, long and challenging tour that largely follows old war-time paths. Most of the Ferrata Zandonella is secured with new, well tensioned steel ropes. The rest is relatively easy walking terrain. The descent to Rifugio Berti runs beneath the foot of the rock face over gravelly and steep terrain, where the path is frequently damaged by landslides.

Turn-by-turn directions

Via ferrata Costoni di Croda Rossa: A,B

From the Rifugio Prati di Croda Rossa the route continues up through the meadow and following path 100 to beneath the rocks. Passing the rocks on the right side you will reach the turn-off to Costoni di Croda Rossa after 300m. The via ferrata is not difficult (A,B) and crosses the rock faces partly  on the ridge and partly on the right side. - 1.5 hrs.

 

Via ferrata: Croda Rossa: B

At the start there is a 40 m long iron ladder. The path then winds across scree up to the next rock. Having reached a col the route continues to the west side of the mountain with views to Rifugio Locatelli and to the north face of Cima Undici with Strada degli Alpini. From here you come across remains from the First World War every now and then. After a short section on a gently downhill gravel ledge and an ascent via a wooden ladder you reach large screes. Here, exit into the Cima Undici cirque is possible. Via rocky steps it’s an easy climb to follow the red waymarks to the crux of the tour. It is a 10-15m high, grippy rock formation that can be easily crossed using a safety rope. Now, the summit cross comes into view. - 3 hrs.

 

Descent using via ferrata Mario Zandonella: B,C

From the summit, 2960m, you follow the ascent tracks and the waymarks “Zandonella” down to the south-east (south-east variant). Descend approx. 120m on compact rock (steel rope). Cross a scree gently downhill to 2743m and follow the via ferrata steep up across the  rock face until you reach a distinctive ledge at 2780.  The well secured ledge leads to scree-filled draw in which you descend to a large grotto (fortifications and a sign) on the foot of the rock face. - 1.5 hrs.

From here you follow the partly poor path downwards to the already well visible Rifugio Berti. From Rifugio Berti continue to Rifugio Lunelli in approx. 0.5  - 2hrs

Wer mit dem Auto angereist ist und eingangs seinen PKW an der Lunellihütte abgestellt hat, kann sich an dieser Stelle zwei Tourentage sparen. Vom Rifugio Berti ist der Abstieg zur Lunellihütte schnell gemacht. Dann geht es mit dem PKW zur Coltrondo Alm. Von dort dann zu Fuß zur Obstanserseehütte, bei der man allerdings Bescheid geben sollte, dass man erst nach 16:30 ankommt. Am letzten Tourentag geht es dann von der Porzehütte über die Filmoor-Standschützenhütte zurück zur Coltrondo Alm.
