Rockfax Description
A wire-protected escape route now leads down to the right (east) for those wishing to return to Rifugio Roda di Vael, however most parties choose to continue to the north following more signs to 'Via Ferrata Roda di Vael'. Follow the path with numerous switchbacks until you reach Forcella del Diavolo. Here is a superb rock window, the 'Fensterlwand', complete with a small inlaid cross. Shortly afterwards the first section of wire is reached with an awkward but well-protected brief down-climb into a loose col with dubious rock. The climbing then begins again. Pass a laddered section and continue easily, following more switchbacks to the broad summit marked with a large cross and route book.
Descent - From the summit of Roda di Vael descend to the north following intermittent wire down to Passo di Vaiolon. From here turn left and follow the zig-zagging path down a steep gully to the west until you reach path 549. Follow this south until path 539 leads back to Rifugio Paolina and the chairlift. © Rockfax

Cheet 21 Sep, 2015 Solo dnf Limited time on arrival to make use of the sunny weather, we got there at 3pm and need to get down by 5.30pm so I only managed 15min VF unclipped, the rest is just approach work.. David is too slow at descending so thanks to him we missed the chair lift back and walked an extra hour in the fading sun, not too bad except the knees!

Falko 1 Aug, 1974 AltLd O/S This is not a Via Ferrata! 450m ex-aid route continuously overhanging. Climbed largely free @ E1/A1. Narrowly escaped serious dehydration issues - lucky it was a cloudy morning. Done in a day from a bivvy at the foot - 14 years after the first ascent (Maestri / Baldessari, 1960) which took six days. Has subsequently been freed.
