Via Ferrata Cortina_Guide Alpine (27) ferrata degli alpini col dei bos

Description

The relatively short access makes it one of the most popular route. It devellopes along the western arete of Col dei Bos and the most difficult part is at the very beginning, once you geth trough it, the difficulty is medium. Excellent ferrata to do even in late autumn, when the wood is tinged with gold.

It’s steep in the first part with about 80 mt. of vertical wall. At the exit on the detritic ledge, continue until you pass a panel exposed, but not long. The exit on easy rocky slopes marks the end of the hardest part. The last piece is again challenging, with a dihedral that leads to a prative tract.
