Short but interesting via ferrata, more difficult than Gran Cir one, but really remarkable for beginners and not only. 

Getting There

From Passo di Gardena/Grödner Joch (m.2121), from Hotel Cir or from the valley station of the Dantercepies lift, take the road or signposted mountain path to the mountain station of the Dantercepies lift below the Piccolo Cir. Directly above the station, first cross a grassy ridge following the signs to the Piccolo Cir, then take the steep route across a ravine to the start of the via ferrata (iron ladder).

Route Description

Ascend the ladder and follow the fixed cable, climbing on breezy walls with good grips, to the summit. Place for few people after the top collapsed in 2004. Instructive and impressive look towards Sella group and Sassolungo. For the descent: following the cable, reach a little saddle, going down along a steep crumbly ravine to the grassy ridge. Here it is possible and advisable to proceed towards Gran Cir route.

Essential Gear

A normal gear for via ferrata is required:helmet, harness, complete ferrata set, gloves.
