The via ferrata, which is hardly demanding in terms of climbing technique, is the best-known and most scenically impressive via ferrata in the Brenta due to its easy route guidance on the narrow rock faces. With the ascent and descent, however, it is a long and physically demanding day hike.

The Sentiero delle Bocchette Centrali is only a moderately difficult ferrata and therefore glitters less with challenging climbing passages than with its spectacular route along the rugged rock faces of the Brenta Rock. Over numerous rocky ledges, the route leads airily along the steep walls of the Sfulmini Towers, which drop more than 1000 m, and past the Campanile Basso, a majestic rock spire and landmark of the Brenta. &Uml;ber ladders, short unsecured climbing passages and again and again the spectacular rock faces with fantastic mountain panorama, the path leads from the Bocca degli Armi above the Alimontahütte to the Bocca di Brenta. The world-famous via ferrata is already considered legendary among alpinists. During the rush hours at weekends or on public holidays, it can therefore happen that the relatively short route of about three hours is very crowded.

Very nice and spectacular Tour. Did it with my girlfriend in 8h walking time (3,5h to beginning via ferrata, 2,5h via ferrata, 2h down). A good option would be to stay one night at Ref. Pedrotti and do the next day the via ferrata around Cime Tosa, (and climb Cime Tosa).

Yes, without staying in the refuge it is a long trail. We were staying in Casinei rifugio and the route took us about 11,5 hours. But via ferrata is short - it's only 2,5 hours the rest is ascent and descent from the ferrata. Landscapes are amazing!
