The Capi’s via ferrata, dedicated to Fausto Susatti, a mountaineer from Rovereto, is rightly one of the most beautiful and popular on Lake Garda. Its spectacular 360 degrees view is unforgettable.
Usually, it is done by making a loop: starting from the small village of Biacesa, at the entrance of the Val di Ledro, and after about an hour of path halfway up the wall, arriving at the beginning of the long rocky ridge where the iron cables begin. The ridge, always ventilated by the Ora del Garda (a peculiar wind blowing every day in the valley) and therefore suitable in all seasons, leads to the 900-meter top after a few exposed and breathtaking passages to be overcome towards the final section. To come back, the journey continues on the crossing, turning into a beautiful track in the woods and then going through sections of tunnels dating back to the First World War, there will still be some parts equipped to go to the Arcioni bivouac and finally to the starting point.
How long is the tour?
The difference in height of the via ferrata is about 400 meters, so not a short via ferrata, generally the whole route takes about 5 hours to complete the loop from the parking lot.
Who is it suitable for?
Technically it is not a difficult via ferrata and it is not very vertical, so it is suitable for everyone, even with minimal walking training.
What should I bring?
Trekking shoes, backpack with water, a snack and light raincoat.
