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.

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: www.gardatrentino.it

Destination

Monte Colodri

Turn-by-turn directions

Access

In Prabi take the trail in front of the car park of the municipal swimming pool which leads you to the foot of Monte Colodri and in a few minutes you are at the starting point of the ferrata.

Ascent

The start of the Via Ferrata is above the limestone boulders at the foot of the east face of Monte Colodri. The first stretch is a track which zigzags up side of the rock. After a short vertical section, continue diagonally to the left until you come to the base of a smooth slab fitted out with rungs (1). Head up diagonally to the left following a cleft in the rock which brings you to the final upward stretch. The final vertical section is fitted with rungs and stirrups to take you past the short dihedral which takes you over the top of the wall. A limestone slab of karst formation with plenty of cracks and clefts takes you to the cross at the top in just a few minutes.

Return

From the summit follow the Sentiero dei Lecci trail and head down to Laghel. From here it is about 15 minutes to the centre of Arco.

 

VARIATIONS OF THE CLIMB COLODRI FOR MOUNT COLT

From the cross of Mount Colodri go north - SAT 431 B - until you arrive at the cliffs. Continue along the “via ferrata” (there are security wires to hold on too) that goes down westwards until SAT 431, follow the path going north until you reach the hills just before the peak of Mount Colt, remaining near a pylon. 45°56.511 N - 10°53.637 E. You go down the path east of Mount Colt, after a few meters you’ll find a safety wire. This wired path is not technically difficult but it’s exposed and requires climbing equipment ie. boots, harness, helmets. There is a metal ladder to enable you to climb the last rock, then you go down to Malapreda valley. Return to Prabi taking the roman bridge of Ceniga, close to Arco (40mins).

Sehr schöner Klettersteig für Anfänger. Tolle Aussicht auf Arco. Der Rückweg über Arco dauert ca 1 Stunde. Bietet die Möglichkeit in Arco die schöne Altstadt anzuschauen....
