The fully equipped path, not very long, crosses the slopes north and northwest of the Forame chain. The 1500m of fixed ropes and the strokes with iron pegs allow to overcome lobbies and detrital terraces to touch the Austrian station of the First World War.

From the Forcella Verde, you can also reach the large Cristallo Mount’s fork and from here, with the easiest Ivano Dibona Trail, continue to Forcella Staunies and the Rif. Guido Lorenzi.

The overall commitment, if one takes into account the approach and the descent, requires a good level of training.


Follow the former seat of the railway line, for trail 208. Crossing a wooden bridge there is an indication for the Via Ferrata. Continue up the steep path that crosses the forest to the edge of the rocks. In correspondence of an isolated sapling the path bends to the left (east) and crossroad arriving at 3 caves (three holes). Then for scree uphill to the great cavern and from here to the left, always by path, to the attack.

Ascent description

When the “Black Wall” is reached with the first fixed ropes, it is bordered on the right to go up to a first slope. “Cengia Bassa”. It continues, for ramps and a vertical duct with jammed boulder (equipped with iron spikes), up to a second ledge. For a steep path you reach a canyon that goes up, first on the left then passing on the bottom, to arrive at a fork on the ridge that, to the west, climbs to the wide top of the west tip of the Forame Mount (2385m).

Following the path that crosses the grassy slopes you descend to the Southeast, you cross the rocks at the base of the Forame top and then climb up to the crest and the top of Forame de Fora. You descend by the crest path to the Forcella Gialla (2400m) and then cross, for ridge and gravel, to the Forcella Verde (from here possible variation for the great Fork of the Cristallo Mount and with the Dibona path to Staunies and the Rif. Guido Lorenzi).

Descent description

From the Green Fork you go down to scree-warning: do not get to the bottom of the screed (Rock jumps!), you have to stop at 2/3 of the descent (sign with the deviation). Follow the path marked for the gully Pra del Vecio and crossing the climb path you follow it to the parking lot of Cimabanche.
