Itinerary designed to give beginners the possibility to practice with the typical equipment of ferrata. It runs on natural rock lines and ledges.
The ascent takes place on the east side of the tower called Ra Pegna. The nails follow the natural lines of fracture of the rock and, in a short time allow to reach the top located at 2240 M. The itinerary has no particular difficulty and after the top, an iron staircase allows you to reach the path to return.
After the summit, a slight descent leads to a ladder that allows you to reach the path in a short time to return. A good alternative for the descent is to take the “Camosci” trail to Piè Tofana.
Although dedicated to beginners, this ferrata must be tackled with the necessary equipment and prudence, especially with children. Concatenated with the Astaldi Trail, it represents a valid alternative on days of uncertain weather conditions.
