With their explosive shapes and unique colours, the Dolomites are the crown jewels of the European Alpine range. And via ferrata climbing is a great way of enjoying the magnificence of this awesome mountain environment. You will be regularly stopped in your tracks by the views. In recent years, the wartime ferratas have been restored and many new ones, including some highly technical sport routes, have been added to create a network of routes around the whole Dolomite region. Volume 1 of "Via Ferratas of the Italian Dolomites" covers the northern central and eastern Dolomites across an area stretching from Val di Fassa to Auronzo. This second edition has been comprehensively updated and includes improved diagrams and four completely new routes. Routes are grouped according to the recommended valley bases and graded using the authors' own, simplified system. Mountain ranges covered include Catinaccio, Marmolada, Sella, Puez Odle, Fanes, Tofane, Cristallo, Sesto, Sorapiss and Marmarole.
