Follow the footpath from the top of the Resgia Via Ferrata uphill towards Alp Languard, but turn off rightwards into a small valley (signposted) below the cliff band. Ascend over a grassy slope up to the start. Then it's down to business: short overhanging walls alternate with technical, airy traverses. The not-so-fit should take a good rest at a good spot before the wooden balance beam. A shaky three-rope bridge may strain the nerves, and the final overhang will finish your arms. Only for fit and strong climbers!

Descent: Either hike along the hiking trail to Pontresina or take the Alp Languard chairlift down to the valley.

Safety information

K5 on the via ferrata difficulty scale. Use is under your own responsibility and at your own risk. For your first time on this route, it is recommended that you go with a professional mountain guide.

Climbing on a via ferrata involves some risk. If you have not prepared properly, have inadequate equipment or behave incorrectly, there is a risk of falling. You are therefore advised only to climb on the via ferrata if you have the necessary knowledge and physical fitness. You need to be sure-footed and have a good head for heights.

PLEASE ALSO OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING POINTS:
Only set out in settled weather conditions.
If there is a risk of thunderstorms, keep away from ironwork and quickly look for safe shelter at a sufficient distance away from the via ferrata.
Do not cause any rock falls and be considerate towards other climbers.
Check your partner at the start (helmet, climbing harness and energy absorbing lanyard).
Maintain sufficient distances (only one person between two fixed points).
Do not leave the via ferrata and always use the safety rope.
Protect fauna and flora. Take your rubbish away with you.
Children (below 40 kg): The via ferrata set and harness (or combiharness) must be appropriate for the weight of the child.
Do not start out on the via ferrata if it is closed off.
Via ferrata sets in compliance with the EN 958:2017 standard are suitable for users weighing between 40 and 120 kg
