FERRATA GROTTA DI TOFANA – TOFANA DI ROZES

OPEN

During the mid-half of latter century the Grotta di Tofana was a highly popular outing with visiting tourists, now though it is has fallen into disuse. I believe though that the walk and ferrata remains a highly interesting outing, above all in spring when temperatures rise and hundreds of spectacular stalagmites form in the cave thanks to the water dripping from the roof.

OPEN

The Scala of Minighel is a really peculiar ferrata, both for its history and also for the particularity of his features, which distinguish it from all the climbing I got to go up in many years of hiking and mountain climbing. This is the first via ferrata built in Cortina, and in the Dolomites.
