New via ferrata in Val Gardena "Furcela de Saslonch"
The via ferrata "Furcela de Saslonch" - which stands for "Forcella Sassolungo" in Ladin - has a climbing length of more than 500 metres, with varied climbing over ribbons and ramps, as well as some steep ascents, overcoming just under 200 metres in altitude. In the middle section, a secured emergency exit allows you to leave the climbing facility if necessary or if you are overtaxed. In the upper part, an exposed jagged ridge is climbed and the summit ridge is reached on an airy suspension bridge over a gap. In a few steps you descend to the Toni Demetz Hut. The magnificent rock scenery all around is impressive, surrounded by the steeply rising walls of the cinque dita summit and the Sassolungo massif.
The difficulties are quite continuous B tracks with some C passages. Walking time is about 2 hours. Via ferrata equipment and helmet are required.
Beside the normal routes we would like to introduce you to two less known but wonderful routes:
GIUANI DA IMAN ROUTE on the COBRA and GULIA E CRISTINA ROUTE, as well as SONIA ROUTE on the TONI-DEMETZ TOWER.
