Short, steep via ferrata on solid rock with good grip.Easy access and gorgeous panorama.
Best time of year
Steep via ferrata, solid rocks with well-placed resting stops, and well-protected. The distances between the fixtures are short and there are frequent steel and tightened cables. The steep path towards the exit is made easier with the help of a stairway.
The orientation to the south is optimal, it allows to carry out the hike from late spring until late autumn (during autumns of prolonged fine weather).
Access to the via ferrata: from the path, arrive at the Dantercepies cable-car station that follows a dug-up road or along the path on your left.
Descent: from the top, turn over the steep gap at the exit of the via ferrata, then follow the steel cables that go down to the crossroad between the fourth and fifth Cima Cier. Go down until the gorge (uneven stones and rubble) then carry on to the right until you reach the climbing path.
