Ferrata Bovero to Mount Col Rosà

Col Rosà is the northernmost peak of the Ampezzo basin, one of the less renowned mountains of the area, "only" 2166 metre high. It is a solitary peak, not very popular among hikers because it is not well-linked to the other Dolomites peaks.

The via ferrata stretches out on the exposed south-west face. Even though not very long, it is an enjoyable path with technically demanding pitches and a challenging traverse towards left.

From the summit it is possible to enjoy a wonderful view of Cortina, the Boite valley and the vast area of the Dolomiti d'Ampezzo Nature Park.
