The Ferrata del Monte Cavallino presents the most technically difficult challenge of the whole week. People who accept this challenge should be experienced with via ferratas of difficulty D. Because of the flat rocks, friction climbing shoes are recommended.
Ferrata des Monte Cavallino/Große Kinigat: D
The via ferrata to Monte Cavallino is a difficult, Alpine-like via ferrata. The route runs up a large pillar. Especially in the lower part, there are some challenging climbing sections, mostly steep plates that only have a few iron clips. The tour should not be underestimated, because the total climbing length is 650m. All in all a tour through very impressive landscape where on your descent across Hintersattel you can also plan a rest stop at the rustic hut Filmoor-Standschützenhütte. Descent to the hut Filmoor-Standschützenhütte and then on via the Carnic high route towards the hut Neue Porzehütte.
Total 8 hrs.
Safety informationNo exit possibilities along the via ferrata! Therefore, the tour should only be tackled in stable weather. In the middle part there is a white static rope, which leads to a bivouc place under a rock. In the event of a thunderstorm, it is the only place that offers protection.
