  • The scenery here is beautiful. But this is one more place that is on Alta Via 1 bumper-to-bumper highway. The scenery worth the crowd, but I liked better the hikes that are not align to Alta Via 1.

  • This mountain looks impenetrable when you view it from the top of the chair lifts, but there is a great Via Ferrata route up which isnt too long and gives a real sense of achievement. It is just hard....  more

  • It was one of the first Dolomite peaks I ever climbed. What memories. Departure from the Giau pass, up to the top of the Averau the climb is quite tough. Breathtaking panorama, to climb Averau after the Nuvolau saddle there are some aided points, for expert mountaineers it is not necessary to set a via ferrata, however a helmet is always recommended. You can continue the very comfortable ring path up to the ref. Squirrels and 5 Torri passing under the eastern part of the Nuvolau. Those who want could also add a climb to the Nuvolau. But already in this way the complete tour is long.
  • From the Averau refuge at h.2413 in a short time you reach the attack of the via ferrata, short, classified as medium difficulty. At the end of the via ferrata, a path marked with little men to the top of q. 2650m. Very hard-packed, I recommend making the climb early in the morning.
