One of the best  Sucess!

By the Via Ferrata Lipella - A fantastic day climbing one of the best Via ferrata in the Dolomites and therefore in the world. Arrived exhausted on the summit to be rewarded with a fantastic (and slightly worrying) view of storm clouds brewing over the rest of the Tofana massif. Running full tilt down the screes to beat the storm concluded a perfect day on the hill.

Tofana in the ice  Sucess!

Ferrata Giovanni Lipella, very nice route, wonderful mountain. This summit wasn´t "free of charge". Whole route was covered by ice and it wasn´t easy.

Via ferrata Lipella  Sucess!

Via ferrata Lipella

Start from the refugio Fanzarego to the path under the castelletto. Great long ferrata. Even in summer I there was some ice on the rocks.

Normal route  Sucess!

Second attempt on this mountain. First was one day before via Lipella ferrata, but we had to give up because of bad weather. Second was more successful. Quite easy and nice.

Via ferrata "Giovanni Lipella"  Sucess!

There isn't much to say about this route. Probably the best you can do in the Dolomites. I've been very lucky, it was a fantastic summer day and there wasn't much people ( strange because august is high season ). There are books that rate this ferrata difficult or even very difficult, but actually it was long but easier then I tought, I think Vid rated it well ( medium-hard ).

Via ferrata Lipella  Sucess!

Start from the parking(about 1800m) under passo Falzarego. So we had longer way than from rif. Dibona. Great long ferrata with some perfect sections (tunnel through Castelleto or final steep part).

Normal Route Ski Alp  Sucess!

It seems really a bad day looking above our heads.
It has been foggy during all the ascent but ... the sky turned blue for only 10min ... and we were there.
Impressive descent, expecially at the beginning.

Route Climbed: Ascent: Via ferrata G. Lipella, Descent: normal way Date Climbed: 02. September 2004  Sucess!

Wonderful round-trip starting from Rif. Dibona, using the Via ferrata Lipella on the west face, which is a rather long and on the second half (in the "amphitheater") quite demanding ferrata, bringing you a huge variety of impressions (nice views to marmolada, long tunnel / "galleria", where you need a head torch, easy and steep sections...).

During the descent (normal way) take a brake in the Rif. Giussani. Running down the scree is bringing you lots of fun after a beer and a schnapps... ;-))

Great mountain, did this while on vacation in the area. Would love to come back and hike some of the other great 3000ers.

Long climb! You get everything - complete darkness (World War I tunnel, it's long), nice but not really terrifying exposure, loose rock, ice/snow below the summit (be careful). Usually very crowded, but luckily I did not need to queue. Fantastic view from the top!

Route Climbed: Ferrata Lipella Date Climbed: September 4th 2000  Sucess!

very impressive day on one of the classical via ferrata of the Dolomites. We reached the end of the cables some minutes before a snow shower. Snow or ice at this very exposed ferrata isn't funny and can be dangerous.
