This is a rather dull ferrata with little-to-no technical difficulties. Mostly, it's just never ending plodding, plodding, plodding uphill, which is probably even more disappointing, because the walls you think you will ascend, when you look up from Pietramurata, are soooo impressive. But, you DO NOT climb those walls! Instead, you veer diagonally and horizontaly (on the left flank), gradually gaining in altitude, all the way to the top. There are two or three places where you have to grab the steel cables and progress somewhat vertically, but I wouldn't rate anything here above C. It's a very good cardio exercise in beautifull surroundings, sure, but no climber's paradise. So, if you are looking for an adrenaline experience and perhaps at least a few segments of D or E difficulty, steer clear and go somewhere else. There is so much great climbing or mountaineering available all around you here that choosing a better destination shouldn't be a problem.
