It’s climbing time! Perfect weather to enjoy a via ferrata in the Cinque Torri Area / Dolomites.
Ideal for beginner climbers or those just looking for a short, pleasant trip, Averau provides everything you need to enjoy a lovely day in the Dolomites.
Located amidst the training ground of countless rock climbers who’ve come before, the Averau via ferrata is a wonderful easy climb. The route begins with either a chairlift from Rifugio Fedare up to Rifugio Averau or from Cortina d’Ampezzo, by taking the SS 48 towards Passo Falzarego, hopping on a chairlift to Rifugio Scoiattoli, and hiking to the start of the via ferrata, which sits just below Averau’s northeast gully.
This ferrata climb begins with a short ascent, past a chimney and up the 60m / 197′ lined path which brings you to the crest, where the views are simply magnificent. From atop the peak, gaze around at the breathtaking panoramas from Monte Pelmo to Antelao, Civetta, Sorapis and even Tofana di Rozes. Once you’ve taken in the incredible sights, you can return the same way, descending down until you reach the starting point of Rifugio Averau.
The total trip takes about a half day to complete and is perfect for climbers of any skill level. If you’re looking for a new and unique way to experience the magnificence of the Dolomites, feel free to contact us.
