The "Via Ferrata"

Are you up for a sporting challenge? If so, the Via Ferrata route is ideal for you! The climbing route is secured by steel ropes in some places and equipped with ladders in others. Mountain lovers will find a perfect middle ground here between hiking and climbing. Suitable for adults and youngs. A guide is recommended for children over 8 years of age. The Via Ferrata starts at an altitude of 1,704 metres and takes about three hours to complete. Sure-footedness and a head for heights are required to do this route and to enjoy the fantastic mountain panorama.

Route information:
From the arrival station on the summit, follow the indication signs to Lanzo d'Intelvi. After about 15 minutes walking you will see the pole with the indication of the way to follow. In a few minutes you reach the ferrata beginning. A sheathed steel cable climbs on the rock to the right up to a short, slightly overhanging staircase that allows you to overcome the first prominence. 

 

You descend a little jump with the help of a chain and you face the key point of the ferrata: two long ladders interspersed with an exposed crosspiece and without artificial supports. After passing this vertiginous but easy passage, you will follow, always assisted by a cable running, a short section first uphill and then downhill. You arrive at the foot of a sort of plate-dihedral about ten meters high. You win it easily enough, also facilitated by the few artificial and natural steps. Then continue for easy rocks until you reach a well-stepped ramp. You climb this little wall and with fun and safe climbing you come close to a short wooden bridge suspended in the air. From here you can reach the top of Monte Generoso, practically walking with one foot in Italy and one in Switzerland.

Climbing equipment: Bring your own climbing or hiking boots. Helmets, harnesses and carabiners are provided by the guides.
