OverviewAmong climbers Colodri is well-known for its amount of routes (especially in higher grades) as well as its easy accessibility. But it has also another attraction – a Via Ferrata.
This “Sentiero attrezzato” ( = well-equipped way) was build originally to provide climbers an easy descent. But in a short time it was adopted by the Ferratisti.
The characteristic feature of Colodri is the combination of simplicity, easy access and the great view you can enjoy from the top. All in all it is a “training-ferrata” without difficulties that can easily compete with many of the great Ferratas in the Alps.
Please note: SP member mountaindog has posted Colodri already, but as a climbing rock. I am far from affronting or provoking mountaindog in any way! But I think Colodri is not also a wonderful climbing rock but also offers this Via Ferrata and this can be posted too. And because mountaindog's page is already a route I couldn't add another route to his one.
So if anybody finds that I should add the Via Ferrata to its "Miscellaneous Info" please contact me. If necessary I will of course delete this page (with a tear in my eye ...)
Getting ThereTo reach Arco you drive on the A22 to exit Rovereto Nord. Head to direction Lago di Garda until Nago. At the roundabout in Nago branch right to Arco. There will be signs for the camping area.
The entry to the Via Ferrata is on the road to the camping area Prabi, opposite the car park of the hotel. Follow the signs to the sporting-path and then branch to the left. Or just follow the other Ferrata-aspirants ;-)
Of course you can descent at the Via Ferrata too, but first you have to climb against the current, and second the descent via Santa Maria di Làghel is worth a walk!
