Dolomites – Faloria
TOTAL TRAVEL TIME
From June to October
Usual equipment for Via Ferrata. It can also be travelled in winter, with the appropriate equipment.
During the opening period of the Faloria cable car: from the intermediate station, go up the trail 206. In other periods, the most convenient access is from the parking lot along the SS 48 before Lake Scin.
It is rightly considered the most demanding ferrata of the Conca. Vertical and sporty, it needs good fitness.
Once reaching the point of attack, at the base of the cracks of Faloria, the itinerary rises immediately vertically. Compared to the ascent line of the cable car, it moves slightly to the right, offering unbeatable views over the valley and the surrounding peaks. It is well equipped, and the most sporty traits can be overcome thanks to steps. It offers very varied passages, with fireplaces, ledges and a very short, slightly overhanging section. The last stretch comes out in a ledge rich in pinnacles, in view of the Faloria refuge. It is still necessary to have a good general fitness and never underestimate its exposure.
You can easily descend by cable car or walk along the 212 trail to the Midway station and then to the car park.
High-frequented Ferrata, good advice is to leave early in the morning, with the first ski lift.
