    Via Ferrata Brenta Dolomites

    Full Description

    A Via Ferrata (Italian for "iron road", plural vie ferrate or in English Via Ferrata) is a protected climbing route found in the Alps and certain other locations. The essence of a modern Via Ferrata is a steel cable which runs along the route and is periodically (every 3 to 10 metres) fixed to the rock. The origins of Via Ferrata date back to the nineteenth century, but Via Ferrata are strongly associated with the First World War, when several were built in the Dolomite mountain region of Italy to aid the movement of troops.

    Via Ferrata can vary in length from short routes taking less than an hour, to long, demanding alpine routes covering significant distance and altitude (1,000 metres or more of ascent taking eight or more hours to complete). In certain areas, such as the Brenta Dolomites, it is possible to link several Via Ferrata together, staying overnight in mountain refuges, and so undertake extensive multi-day climbing tours at high altitude.
