last day of a 5-day-trip through Marmolada Group. We started at Rif. Contrin and hiked via Passo di San Nicolo to Forcella Negra. Via the normal route ferrata to the summit with one of the best panoramas I ever had on a summer day. We proceeded in estern direction and descended crossing Sass d'Adam to Val di San Nicolo
Climbed the Via ferrate route up and walked down the normal route. Awesome views and awesome weather!
Nice ferrata! A helmet is highly recommended as stone fall is frequent. I had none and got a stone shower. Luckily there was a place to retreat (a small overhang). Not a very pleasant experience... The summit views are great, one can see the immense south face of Marmolada. Descended via the normal route.
This was an awesome day. With Werner Oechsle.
Via Forcella Neigra and ferrata from the east, same way back. Weather fine, nice view to Langkofel and Sella groups.
Via Ferrata.Start in sunshine,end in fog.
Started in the sun ended in showers.
Nice & fairly hard ferrata, but not as hard as sometimes described. There are some sections without handholds and steps - you need to use the rope and the friction of the soles of your shoes... ;) But that 's the fun about this route - except, if it's too wet.
Beautiful view from the summit: Vernel & Marmolada on the one side and the whole Sella-group on the other side. If you have perfect weather conditions like we had, it is incredible. We were at the summit of Marmolada the day before, so we enjoyed this special view very well!
