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 info@gardatrentino.it.
  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.

Coordinates:

Turn-by-turn directions

Access

From Riva del Garda head up along the trail SAT 404 which takes you to the mountain hut Capanna Santa Barbara. Continue on SAT 404, then take SAT 404B to the start of the ferrata.

Route

After the first easy bolted slabs you come to the foot of a wall which you ascend by means of a 40 metres ladder (1). At the other end, you proceed on rocky outcrops until you come to a big rock wall. A first ladder 15 metres long (2) takes you to the 70 metres ladder (3). Finally a short ladder of just 15 metres (4) takes you into the woods and from there, a trail takes you to the rocky ridge bolted with cables and ladders (5) which takes you to the summit of Cima SAT.

Return

There are two options:

  • from the summit head down the other side along a bolted section until the fork in the trail where you take the right hand trail, Sentiero dei Crazidei SAT 418, and then SAT 402 which descends to Riva del Garda
  • descend the bolted section as far as the fork and then head left over ledges bolted with metal cables on SAT 413, leaving the trail for Bochet de Concolì on your right, follow the trail SAT 404 and then you come to the junction where the trail SAT 404 A goes towards Bocca d’Enzima. Go down to the left on SAT 404 where a short ladder (6) takes you to the chapel of Santa Barbara and to the mountain hut of the same name and from there you follow the trail back, where you started from.
