This excursion requires many hours, a good physical condition and a lot of endurance. The effort is rewarded by the incredible views towards Lake Carezza and the Catinaccio that stand out through the large towers.

You are in the heart of the Latemar group, in the UNESCO World Heritage Dolomites, areas of disarming beauty.

The via ferrata is only part of the route which, rather crowded at the beginning, will be much less frequented near the equipped path. The hiker will cross paths through the pastures, gravelly sections, large boulders and steps in the ground and on friable rock.

Author’s recommendation

To make the excursion a little less demanding, it is advisable to stay overnight at the Torre di Pisa mountain hut and leave from there directly!

Pampeago (2,015 m)



Turn-by-turn directions

Take the Latemar chair-lift (open from mid-June to the beginning of September) from Pampeago, and from the top of the chair-lift (2010 m) take trail No 521 for Passo Feudo (2175 m). Passo Feudo can also be reached by cable car from Predazzo and the Gardonè – Passo Feudo chair-lift (both open from mid-June to mid-September). From Passo Feudo take trail No 516 leading to Rifugio Torre di Pisa (2671 m). Just beyond the refuge and still on trail No 516, Torre di Pisa can be seen to the left, a huge spur of rock that leans just like the famous tower of the same name. 

Continue along trail No 516 as far as Forcella dei Camosci (2590 m) and further on till you reach Forcella dei Campanili (2685 m). 

Here starts the Via Ferrata (trail No 511) that leads to Rigatti bivouac.

The way back until Forcella dei Campanili is on trail No. 18, then back on the same way to Rifugio Torre di Pisa and Pampeago.

wir haben zu zweit die Tour netto in 6:30 gemacht. Die Leiter ist wohl durch Krampen ersetzt worden. Die vorhandenen Drahtseile sind manchmal etwas locker. Doch grundsätzlich fanden wir die ungesicherten Stellen oft sehr rutschig, weil das Gestein sehr brüchig ist. Vorsichtig beim Gehen ist also geboten.
