Ferrata Pisetta

Piccolo Dain

The Via Ferrata Pisetta is certainly the most difficult in the Lake Garda area. It unravels up the steep eastern side of Piccolo Dain with spectacular aerial views of Lake Toblino right below, and its blue waters.

Relentless, vertical and challenging via ferrata, it requires experience, training and concentration in exchange of breathtaking views throughout the entire climb. Due to its exposure to sunshine, it is not recommended in the hot summer days.

Ferrata Pisetta

The Rino Pisetta itinerary

Participants will have to demonstrate their experience from the very first steps. In fact, we start with a beautiful yet almost vertical wall, after which we move to the left on exposed traverses and slabs of compact limestone that require good use of the feet. The final part of the via ferrata exceeds an exposed pillar that leads to the summit ridge. Be prepared to 2-3 hours of continuous adrenaline and verticality!

For the descent we have two options, depending on the degree of fatigue. Both routes initially reach the town of Ranzo. From here the longer but simpler route follows a tarmac road that enters the Toblino Gorge, eventually emerging at about halfway through the lake. The second route is more demanding, from the town of Ranzo it descends along the south-east side of the Piccolo Dain on a steep path, at times facilitated by metal cables.
