Via ferrata Rino Pisetta
The most difficult protected route in Sarche
The via ferrata Rino Pisetta is located in the middle of the Sarca valley and climbs the Monte Piccolo Dain. This via ferrata is considered amongst the most difficult in the Alps because it climbs vertical slabs of limestone with very little fixed protection so you have to face difficult sections with the very minimum of help. Like all the ferrata in the territory, Pisetta does not lack its panoramic views. It’s peculiarity is the high level of difficulty to get to the top, but you will enjoy if you have a good level of climbing ability, strong arms and a high level of physical fitness.
