Via ferrata delle Aquile
Via ferrata delle Aquile up the imposing east face of Cima Roda della Paganella in Trentino was inaugurated a few years ago and provides extraordinary vistats across of the Adige Valley, the Brenta Dolomites and even down to Lake Garda.
Dedicated to Carlo Alberto Banal, this is a fascinating and adrenaline-charged via ferrata due to constant exposure. Suitable for experienced hikers without fear for heights and in good physical shape.
Take the A22 motorway and exit at San Michele all’Adige - Mezzocorona, then follow signs for Cles. After Mezzolombardo, take the junction for Altopiano della Paganella / Andalo / Molveno. At Andalo, park at the ski lifts and reach Cima Paganella, La Roda.
Alternatively, you can park at Santel, slightly above Fai della Paganella, and from there walk up path #602 (2 hours).
From the summit follow signs for Sentiero delle Aquile or path #602 to reach the fork and the start of the via ferrata.
The route begins by descending down the Battisti gully before traversing alongs a series of ledges on the East Face of Paganella. The route is very exposed and equipped with steel cable and metal brackets. Two hanging bridges are located on the second half of the ferrata, and towards the end there are two alternatives that lead to the “Eagles’s Throne”: the first leads via a classic metal cable fixed to the rock, the second is more challenging and characterized by a spiral, 360° ladder.
From Trono dell'Aquila walk along the "Path of the Eagles" to reach the fork for the via ferrata, then return along the path used earlier in the day to reach Rifugio La Roda.
