Did this as the descent for the Col du Bois, technically easy, bring a torch and a helmet, RIP knees.

Perfect rainy day “plan B”. We hiked up Lagazuoi Pizo through the WWI tunnels: steep!

Really Interesting tunnel complex and to understand the history of the area it is really worthwhile

superb wet weather alternative not really a via ferrata though, Although during lightning the approach is very exposed as we discovered. (bolt hit ground a 100 m away when exiting the cable car)

Excellent, fascinating wet-weather option. We explored along to the ruins on Martini Ledge (well worth doing), went up one side of the tunnel loop and down the other.

Done in ascent on a very wet day. Lots of snow at the top made the final section getting to the cable car station somewhat spicy. Fantastic place and still so much more to see that we didn't have time to explore - will be back!

Easy ferrata. First one to Jonas. Up with skilift and down with tunnels. Old World War I things in the tunnels. Very interesting.

Not really a via feratta, only needed to clip on when we stepped out the trapdoor Stollenloch style.

No real need for VF kit, one tunnel does go outside for 5 meters which is quite exposed (into the wooden hatch). In descent.

Flaming torch no longer available it would seem. Not really a true via ferrata as kit not needed, but interesting walk nonetheless.

Kit not really needed but really great fun, the trek up worth doing (rather than cheating and taking the cable car)

Very wet day, not that big a fan of tunnels, but probably good if you like that kind of thing!

It was a snowy day, so being indoors seemed like a good idea. Was a fascinating insight into the efforts during the war. However, no-one told us there were multiple ways you could go...
