The first via ferratas in South Tyrol were created during WWI to be able to speed up the provisioning of soldiers at the Ortles and Dolomites fronts. Today there are over 80 via ferratas. An Eldorado for climbers are the climbing crags “Morderplotta” between Cortaccia and Curon, “Unterlegstein” in Fennhals, “Sefnar Plottn”, “Tanzbach-Knottn” and Forcella di Sarentino in Val Sarentino, the climbing crag in Trodena, the indoor climbing centres in Appiano, Termeno and Bolzano, the climbing wall in Monticolo woods and the high wire parks in Caldaro and Terlano.
