Ascent Trip Report

Started at the village and met our guide. Took the Gondola part way up. Some snow travel up gentle slopes with ice axe to the beginning of the Via Ferrata. Very fun climb. You easily and safely could ascend this yourself, unguided, with basic rockclimbing gear and knowledge. No rope needed, use a 2 tether system. The hard part will be finding the base of the climb. Look for rebar, rungs, and aluminum ladders. Very fun.
