THE APPROACH: The Diavolezza cable car takes you up to 2978 m. From the top station, a little path takes you in about 20 minutes down to the start at the foot of the Piz Trovat face.
THE DESCENT: You descend via the north-east ridge, across rough terrain and scree. There are some very steep sections, so you need to be sure-footed. Follow the signs for the Berghaus Diavolezza to arrive at its inviting sunshine terrace.

Safety informationK5–K6 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.
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
