Route Description

Follow the path of the Via Ferrata Cresta Ovest until you reach Forcella Marmolada (between Marmolada and Piccolo Vernel)
Once there follow a small ledge that turns around the Piccolo Vernel going on your left. Follow it, you will have some easy passages of II degree until you reach a plateau.
Once there you will see the top, walk there (from the plateau about 30/40 min.)

Essential Gear

The same for the Via Ferrata Cresta Ovest. The way is easy, but you can bring a rope if you want to be on the safe side and if you are bringing somebody unexperienced

Just to add that you don't need to pass glacier and Forcella della Marmolada. At the beggining of a little glacier below Forcella della Marmolada just go right on the rock slope that goes paralel with glacier, and you will get above the forcella. Then just follow route on the right as is described on the page.

I've been there in the end of september and I pass this way without crampons that were needed on the glacier to forcella.
