According to the departure point you choose, you will follow different routes. However, they will all meet in the path n.558 to Van delle Sasse, where the Ferrata Tissi starts.
The ascent takes to the north-eastern part of the cirque, where the new route starts - it is equipped with no less than 500 m of ropes and 160 fixings. This route follows the old itinerary opened by Giovanni Angelini and Franco Vienna in 1931.
This part of the climb is really difficult, as the ascent is sometimes vertical. This safeguarded climb ends at the Torrani Refuge, but you can also go on along the normal route that takes to the summit of the Civetta.
Descent: from the Torrani Refuge, follow the Piovanel normal route, getting to the bottom of the eastern rock flank.
