An unusual perspective on Lake Garda

Via dell’Amicizia (Friendship Route), sometimes known as ‘'Via del Centenario Sat’, is a superb via ferrata that ascends Cima Sat via a series of ladders that ascend the 850m high headwall above Riva on the shores of Lake Garda. Many of the ladders are more than 70m high with over 100 rungs, offering considerable exposure as you stare down over the famous turquoise lake in northern Italy. Getting a good angle on the ladder was difficult and required some inventive imagination and a second rope for safety.
