No it's been disassembled I'm afraid. The hut at Pian Fiacconi has also been destroyed by avalanche, so walking from the road is the only option these days, no overnight the evening before.

That’s a shame. What year did they dismantle it.

2019...yes quite sad...running along to jump on it and travelling standing up was quite the ride!

Not quite sure if you mean the via ferrata but it's been a stonking year for snow in the Dolomites and anything that's not south facing is still pretty much submerged. That includes the summit hut on Punta Penia. This is a video of the warden trying to clear the snow...with a chainsaw! It's a couple of weeks old now but the snow situation hasn't changed much. https://www.ildolomiti.it/video/montagna/2023/il-video-lo-spettacolo-sulla-...

Think it's been 3 or 4 now? The hut getting eradicated was quite the blow too. And then the serac collapse...

Last July, it appeared that most people heading up to Punta Penia West Ridge were slogging up the old access road roughly under where the lift was during late afternoon (hot!). They were then bivvying/camping on the smaller glacier to the right of Marmolada before heading up the west Ridge the next day.
