Via della Spalla

The “Via della Spalla” to Creton di Culzei is a classic climb that develops on the western forepart of the summit of Creton di Culzei.

The ascent takes place in the first part along canals and chimneys and then, after the passage known as the “cat’s step”, exits on the panoramic southern wall of the forepart, in view of the De Gasperi Lodge.

The difficulties of the route range between the third and fourth degrees. The ease of protection, as well as the presence on site of various anchor points, make it ideal for those who want to approach “real” mountaineering.

The route offers the possibility to exit on the last stretch of the Ferrata dei 50 without difficulty, thus avoiding the “cat’s step” and the last edge to the top.
