Pure adrenaline on the mountain cliff as your arms cling to the wall and your body leans against the rock, your body is tense and your mind is focused, the silence of the mountains broken only by the sound of the wind, the clinking of your carabiners and the few words spoken by your fellow climbers. Look at the view from here, as your breathing sets your climbing rhythm.
The vie ferrata routes are equipped with metal cables and ropes, iron ladders and various other fixed anchors like wooden walkways or suspension bridges. It's this artificial equipment that make it possible for you to climb ledges, walls and reach the tops of rocky terrain or difficult stretches safely.
The Dolomiti di Brenta Paganella Alpine Guides will take you to these peaks as well as suggesting many different routes that have the taste of true mountaineering.
Here's an example: With the Via delle Bocchette in the Brenta Dolomites you will experience the grandeur of the mountain sides, as you scale the sinuous slopes of our summits.
Does it seem dangerous? Well, it isn't! If you are not an expert our guides can accompany you, never forget to wear the right clothes or the right equipment to deal with via ferrata: helmet, harness, vie ferrata climbing gloves and a kit containing lanyards, carabiners and screamers.
The difficulty of a via ferrata is the verticality of the wall and the number of natural or artificial holds and supports present. This is an opportunity to test yourself and see what it's like to touch the sky with your fingers.
If you are a mountain lover, you already know the excitement of hiking at altitude, following a via ferrata or testing your climbing skills: the important thing is to be prudent, approaching these activities in an informed and careful manner.
To help you remember how to stay safe, we have created a handbook and four quick guides, in collaboration with UNESCO Dolomites, the Trentino Alpine-Hut Association, the S.A.T. Trentino Alpine Society, and the Trentino Alpine Rescue and Alpine Guide organisations.
