Via Ferrata

What is a via ferrata?

A typical climb of the Dolomites, itineraries equipped with metal steps and cables so the progression will be easy and funny with continuous and safe grip for the hands and feet. 

Using the appropriate kits, the cable allows you to tackle the climb safely without resorting to the classic progression with rope .

This allows the ascent even in groups (up to 6 people per mountain guide) which makes it a more “social” activity than the classic mountaineering climb.

A vertical proposal all in Finale 


Although not a typical “specialty” of the Finale Ligure area, the Ferrata degli Artisti of Magliolo is now a traditional attraction for lovers of this kind of climbing.

The itinerary develops on the southern slope of Bric Agnellino (1335 m asl) until it reaches the top following a series of steep rocky spurs (called Costa dei Balzi Rossi because of the typical color of the rock) interspersed with softer parts.

The southern exposure makes it perfect for spring and autumn but with the right conditions and / or correct departure times the ascent can be made all year round.

This is not particularly difficult but it’s long via ferrata, so the whole day is required for the ascent and descent.

Special passages: a long and aerial Tibetan bridge 42 m long

The strong point of the itinerary: an exceptional panorama on the Ligurian Riviera

Curiosity: along the route you will find the paintings of the artist-climber Mario Nebiolo

Personal equipment to face the climb:

– Hiking shoes or light mountaineering boots

– Backpack with at least a liter of water and a small supply of food

– Gloves

Information regarding equipment and clothing may vary depending on the conditions and season. Follow the instructions of the guide.
