Via Ferrata Giuseppe Olivieri to Punta Anna

The demanding Via Ferrata Olivieri is one of the most beautiful, exposed and airy secured climbing routes in Cortina and probably in the whole Dolomites area.

Thanks to its steepness, the breathtaking landscape and the excellent south-facing position, it is immensely satisfying.  

This ascent, almost entirely equipped with fixed wire ropes, follows the steep south ridge up to Punta Anna.
