Via Ferrata in the Dolomites of Sexten
The Drei Zinnen (German for "Three Peaks"), also called the Tre Cime di Lavaredo (Italian), are three distinctive battlement-like peaks, in the Sexten Dolomites of northeastern Italy. They are probably one of the best-known mountain groups in the Alps. Until 1919 the peaks formed part of the border between Italy and Austria. The iron roads we find nowadays, are nothing else then renovated roads of war from that time. On these iron roads it is possible to us, to climb many bizarre Dolomit peaks and from here we have marvellous view on the wild mountain group around the Drei Zinnen. The selected iron roads are more or less easy, but require a good physical condition.
Paternkofel (2744 m of elevation), descent to the 3 Zinnen hut (throug an old war gallery).
Merlone Iron Road to the Cima Cadin. This road is less known, but the more attractive.
Marino Bianchi Iron Road to Cristallo di Mezzo (3.154 m of elevation). When the weather is fine, the view we have is just unique!
Now all of us should be very fit, today we do the longest Iron Road – the Strobel Iron Road to Punta Fiammes, over Cortina
