Catinaccio, Marmolada, Sella, Sassolungo, Latemar: these are all names that often bring to mind the very idea of the Dolomites, names well imprinted in the collective imagination and in the minds of excursionists and mountaineers. A capillary tourist organisation, numerous ski-lifts, and an endless network of managed support points make the Fassa Dolomites one of the most easily accessible areas in the entire Alpine arc. Many of these peaks have become among the symbolic images of the Pale Mountains, just think of the Vajolet Towers, the Marmolada Glacier, the Alpe di Siusi. The most famous and technically demanding ferratas are among the most frequented in the Alps, especially those that run between the rocky bastions of the Sella group (a true crossroads of the Dolomite groups) such as the Ferrata delle Mesules, the Ferrata Piazzetta and the Ferrata Brigata Tridentina, or those that climb the rocky walls of Colac and Col Ombert. Many hikers also choose the Catinaccio d'Antermoia via ferrata or the first section of the Bepi Zac Trail because, with moderate technical difficulties, they can enjoy excursions of extraordinary charm.
So what remains to be recommended in these valleys, where at times one almost has the impression of having become accustomed to beauty and its daily media representation? First of all, to use the most famous ferratas as a means of getting to know some of the most surprising mountains in the Alps, and then to try to walk the panoramic and silent Monzoni ridge, among grassy ridges, volcanic rocks and memories of the Great War, to take a very wide-ranging itinerary such as the Ferrata Ombretta, or to venture into the small rocky forest of the Vallaccia group.
