Turn-by-turn directions

The tour starts at the Col Raiser cable car. At the mountain station follow the signposts to Sas Rigais via trail no. 4 and 13 in direction north-east to the forcella Mesdi and Sas Rigais junction.
Following the sign Sas Rigais you then climb the serpentine through a valley up into the forcella between Sas Rigais, 3025 m and Furchetta, 3025 m. 
The secured track takes you across ropes, walls and channels through the east flank up to the summit of Sas Rigais, 3025m. Beware of falling rocks. 
Descent via the partly exposed but secured south crest and then traverse the southwest flank across slip rocks on steel cables secured to the secure trail, that leads you to the Forcella de Mesdi (trail no. 29). Take trail number 13 and 4 to reach the top station of the Col Raiser cable car.

Climbing the via ferrata is undertaken at your own risk!
