Safety information

  1. Only do the via ferrata if you are reasonably fit and in excellent health.
  2. Do not do the via ferrata in bad weather, especially if it looks like a storm is coming.
  3. Do not do the via ferrata alone: if you have an accident nobody will be able to call for help.
  4. The risk of rock falls increases if there are others on the via ferrata or with wind or rain.
  5. Always check route conditions; in winter you may find snow and ice on some routes which make progression dangerous.
  6. Use proper safety gear (helmet, harness, ferrata kit with double self-locking carabiners and energy absorbing systems); put on your helmet once you get near to the wall. Rocks might fall before you get to the start of the via ferrata.
  7. During progression always keep both carabiners clipped onto the safety cable and when you pass the anchor points make sure at least one is clipped on to each safety cable.
  8. Only one person may be on any length of cable between two anchor points.
  9. Wear clothing suited to the altitude, the season and the length of the route: hiking boots and ferrata gloves to protect you from contact with the metal parts.
  10. Pay special attention on the easy parts where there are no cables.
  11. Always check the condition of the bolts and cables on the wall as they can suffer damage in bad weather. If you even think you see any problems that might compromise safety, turn back and let us know about the situation at
  12. In an emergency call 112.
  13. These instructions are no substitute for the specific courses held by mountaineering associations or professional guides. Unless you have experience doing via ferratas, it is better to go accompanied by a mountain guide.


The information on this chart is subject to inevitable variations, so this means that none of the indications are absolute. It is not entirely possible to avoid giving inexact or imprecise information, given how quickly environmental and weather conditions can change. For this reason we decline any responsibility for changes which the user may encounter. In any case,  the hiker is advised to check the conditions of the places, environment and weather before setting out.

Tips, hints and links

  • Facing a via ferrata requires knowledge of the right technique of progression and some training. If you want to try out this experience for the first time or check the use of the via ferrata set, we recommend that you contact one of our mountain guides:

Ceniga - Ponte Romano

Turn-by-turn directions


From the Roman Bridge in Ceniga follow the road towards Maso Lizzone (NO car park). Take trail 428 on the left after a farmhouse on your right and follow it to the foot of the Anglone crag. This is where the ferrata starts.


With short stretches over boulders and a trail which is exposed in parts you come to a sequence of broad steps (1) and an easy chimney which lead to a slab with steps carved into the rock. After a section of trail, you come to a series of stone steps and the final trail which leads to Dos Tondo. Here you are at the junction with the trail SAT 428B “DELLE CAVRE”: head north along it to the Crozolam shelter. Further north along trail SAT 425 you come to the Dell’Anglone bolted trail, which first descends onto a rocky slab and then through a series of chimneys and easy rocks leads down to wide steps which take you to the foot of the wall.


Towards Ceniga, first along the Molinei track, then following the Campagnola track along the River Sarca.

Die Tour hat uns Klettersteiganfängern richtig Spaß gemacht. Einmal sind wir einem Schild "Dro" gefolgt und an einer Stelle gelandet, die wohl für Bergsteiger mit Seilen gedacht ist. Das war uns doch zu heiß und wir sind etliche Höhenmeter wieder hoch auf den anderen Weg. Apropos heiß: der Weg liegt oft in der Sonne. Deshalb sollte genügend Flüssigkeit dabei sein.

Schöne, gut versicherte, einfache Steige verbunden über historische landwirtschaftliche Terrassen. Parken am besten in Dro und dann den Talweg durch Olivenhaine nehmen bis zum Aufstieg über dem Dorf Ceniga. (Wegnummer 428, 428b und 425)
