From the summit, the pathway leads back to Diavolezza station for the return to the valley.

INTRODUCTORY MOUNTAIN CLIMBING COURSE

The aim of the course is to teach participants the basics about how to deal with a high mountain environment, accompanied by a guide. It provides for three excursions, organised as follows: half a day on the rocks: during which participants will learn the basics about materials and knots, basic climbing movements, double assisted rope descent; half a day on a glacier: during which participants will learn about ice equipment and how to use it correctly, progression using ropes on both glaciers and mixed terrains; the course ends with a mountain climbing session up to one of the peaks of Livigno; the choice of the peak and climbing route will depend on the technical abilities of the participants.

FIXED ROPE ROUTE

Via ferrata perfectly fitted on a façade of almost 500m, surrounded by the green Engadine forest. Transfer to Pontresina by car, a few minutes walk and the adventure begins: steps, beams, rope bridges, spider's webs. Fantastic views over the peaks of the Bernina and a waterfall that flows just a few meters away from the ascent path. At the end of via Ferrata there is an easy path that brings you back to the start.
