Grade Route
APPROACH:
2 hr From the fishing club, 4Km south of Cervinia, take the trail to the glacier of Vofrede. At the fork take the right path to the beginning of the ferrata.
FERRATA:
1.30-2.00 hr
DESCENT:
3.00-3.30 hr Continue to the Vofrede pass on loose rock and occasional yellow marks and cairns then descent to Gran Lago, to reach an abandoned hut and take the trail to Vuillermoz Hut, but many itineraries can be chosen to return to Cervinia.

APPROACH: 20 min. From the village of Crépin the trail n.6 leads to the beginning of the ferrata, at an altitude of about 1650mt, in 15-20 minutes. From the car park, you go to the left and take the path 6 to the artificial lake of Cignana that winds up steeply through the forest until you reach the climbing gym "Valtournenche". Just before the "gym", you find the ferrata sign: the beginning is on a bend (right) of the path. The area is also equipped with a "Ferrata test route" for beginners to familiarize with hardware and equipment.

FERRATA 1.30-2 hr

DESCENT: 45 min. Keep following the cables downhill, easily over grass interspersed with short sections of steep rock until you reach the upper end of the "Ferrata Test" cables. Continue down to the right, always aided by metal cables, until you reach the path where they end. Following this path (always to the right) to return, in about 150 meters, to the base of the ferrata. From here you return back to the parking area.
