Climb: On path 525 to Forcella del Sassolungo (2681 m) or by train. From there it is a one hour downhill walk to Rifugio Vicenza (2253 m). Continue south-westwards through the Conca del Sassopiatto. Here, the Ferrata Oskar Schuster begins.
The climb goes through steep ravines, stacks and steps. The last part takes you to the most difficult stretch, a virtually vertical rock face secured only by tightropes. After that it’s not far across the ridge to the summit and the end of the via ferrata.
Descent: On the normal path from the summit one hour to Rifugio Sasso Piatto (2300m).
Sentiero Friedrich August (no. 557) takes you back to Passo Sella.
