12-17 Aug. 2012, I did a hut-to-hut via ferrata trip (German: Klettersteig) with Catherine Benoit in the Brenta Dolomites in the Italian Alps. A via ferrata (Italian for “iron way”) is a hiking/climbing route in the mountains with steel cables and ladders to which you can secure yourself with a climbing harness and carabiners. We went almost 3.000 m high and we even crossed a few small snow fields and glaciers. As expected, sweet views along the way. Total distance: 20 km, total elevation: 1.300 m.
|1.||Rifugio Tuckett||2.272 m|
|2.||Rifugio A. Alimonta||2.580 m|
|3.||Rifugio Tommaso Pedrotti||2.491 m|
