Via ferrata dell’amicizia
Amazing landscapes from the walls of the Rocchetta and Cima Sat
The via ferrata dell’amicizia is located just a little north from Cima Capi, climbs the steep walls of the Rocchetta and arrives at Cima Sat. You start from Riva del Garda, the approach is quite long, the ferrata is demanding and exposed, with long metal ladders. The via ferrata dell’amicizia is classified as difficult and not recommended as a first ferrata, especially if you suffer from vertigo. For its 1000 metres of difference in level, this ferrata requires a minimum physical preparation. The effort, however, is rewarded by the beautiful views overlooking Lake Garda.

Bring a lightweight backpack with a jacket, drinking water and a snack/energy bar.
A pair of low trekking shoes or trainers are fine, sandals even those with a trekking sole are not suitable.
Wear comfortable and sportive clothing.
