Vie Ferrate_Credit Guide Alpine Cortina_Ivano Dibona (2)


The most beautiful via ferrata in the Ampezzo valley. The closure of the Son Forca ski lift has made it less accessible, but it is one of the itineraries that should not be missed by via ferrata lovers.

The original route can be modified by making the loop as follows: Son Forca, val Padeon, ascent to Forcella Bassa, via ferrata Ivano Dibona up to Forcella Staunies, descent into the long Staunies gully back to Son Forca.

The via ferrata trek is not technically difficult, but it is long, phisically demanding, on high altitude and constantly exposed to the south. DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE THE DIFFICULTY.


From Cortina by car towards Passo Tre Croci. From Rio Gere by chairlift to Son Forca.


Ascent description

Due to the closure of the lift to Son Forca back in 2016, now you need to walk the long scree of Staunies (700 meters) up to rifugio Lorenzi (closed).

From here the original trak quickly gains level starting the via ferrata. The suspended bridge is close.

Descent description

The descent is often along a crest, with ledges and forks. Starting the descent of forcella Alta, it is possible at a certain point to make a left towards Son Forca to reach Rio Gere again, or continue along the original trek to ristorante Ospitale.


Along the way there are many remains of the First World War. The views are really stunning. Always check the weather forecast before starting the day and leave early.
