This guidebook presents 75 via ferrata routes in the stunning Italian Dolomites. Part of a 2-volume set, it covers the northern, central and eastern regions, including Cortina, Fassa, Sesto, Canazei and Corvara.

Stunning photography completes this inspirational guide to some of the most breathtaking via ferrata routes in the world. The Italian Dolomites boast some of the most magnificent mountain scenery on the planet and some of the most iconic. Soaring rocky spires and jagged ridgelines are interspersed with gentle valleys and idyllic mountain villages. The Dolomites are also home to the world's greatest concentration of via ferratas - mountain routes or climbs that are protected by a series of cables, metal rungs, pegs and ladders.

"This is the second Via Ferrata guide book i have used written by Rushforth. As usual the photos are particular inspiring and the route descriptions are excellent. It is nice to see that some of the routes from the older rocfax guide book have made it into this copy. A brilliant guidebook for anyone looking to experience the best via ferrata that Italy has to offer as well as being a stunning visual collection of the fantastic scenery of the Dolomites. Finally the guide fits handily in a bag/jacket pocket making it a perfect field guide” - Amazon Customer (read the review
