[VF Ski Club 18 is quite exposed, 4 kb]The "Sci Club 18" is a demanding new via ferrata which winds its way up the Crepe di Faloria face, immediately beneath the cable car which leads up to the top of Monte Faloria above Cortina. This difficult and exposed ferrata offers spectacular views over the entire Ampezzo basin and was created by the Cortina Mountain Guides and the Faloria company with 700m of steel cables and more than 300 pins.

Our second via ferrata and great fun. Covers some pretty cool ground and you can get the ski lift half way up and all the way down :-).

Fun! approach from inter-mid station was 30mins,and Ferrata was about 90mins. In the morning, all section in shade.

Easily accessible on paths without the cable car. Strenuous but not hard and very well cabled.

Probably more like VF4C than 5C.

This VF has a fearsome reputation. After climbing it, my view is that it's not really deserved. Having said that, it is a fantastic via ferrata: steep and sustained climbing, loads of exposure, lots of variety, and it keeps throwing stuff at you. It's also really pretty and a crowd pleaser - listening to people gasp at someone on the ferrata while descending in the cable car is quite a rush! One of my favourite VFs - will do again.

Super fun steep and technical via ferrata that seemed to go on and on.
