Lake Garda: Cima Capi Via Ferrata

3. Lake Garda: Cima Capi Via Ferrata

Great via ferrata with wonderful views. This equipped path is very exposed and proceeds entirely offering glimpses of rare beauty of the lake and the Sarca Valley.

The bucolic and fascinating Ballino pass which divides the well known Lake Tenno from the Fiavè plateau once again brings to us amazing sensations thanks to the new ferrata which runs up the rock faces of Rio Ruzza waterfall. A short approach walk. which starts from the village of Ballino leads us across green meadows and through luxuriant beech trees to the base of the Rio Ruzza waterfall. This is where the intriguing ascent begins which has been perfectly set up with steps, cables and three breathtaking Tibetan bridges which allow us to test and alternate technique and strength along the two sides of the waterfall. A few exposed moves make it feel as if you are about to touch the water which impetuously animates the waterfall.
