Not really a via feratta, only needed to clip on when we stepped out the trapdoor Stollenloch style.
Trevers - 07/Jul/14 with BStar, wjcdean

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 atmospheric and amazing history behind the tunnels and the mountain war.
Moby Copperfield - Jun/11

We started from Forte Stria and walked to the top of Lagazuoi, via the WW1 Austrian troop path, as I wanted to cross the suspension bridge that we failed to get to last year. Walking up in the mist it started to thunder at the top. After a bit of a risk assessment we went for the tunnels to descend as it stopped crackling so much. We emerged into the glorious sunshine of the rest of the day.

Descended rather than ascended. Good wet weather activity.

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

Walked to the top and descended via the tunnel system. Attempted to get to the Austrian troop paths suspension bridge via 'The Martini Ledge' but had to go back due to approaching darkness and getting lost in disused tunnels on the far end of the ledge. There must be a secret way across?

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...
