VAJONT - LA FERRATA DELLA MEMORIA

9 October 1963 ... triggered by the landslide, a huge wave overtopped 262m dam, one of the tallest in the  world at the time, causing death of 1910 people in the small town of Longarone. The Vajont Dam tragedy had been widely talked about, and a lot has been done since not to be left forgotten.

One of the latest initiates is “via ferrata della memoria” , which is remembrance route, almost completely vertical way up for circa two hour, on the northern wall of the Vajont gorge. 

The surroundings, dam, valley, gorge, mountain, all make it too real to imagine what might have happened on the day….

Vajon rememberence via ferrata is an emotional  route. It begins with a few manmade  tunnels, on the mountain ledge aided by cable, until reaching the ladders leading up.
Amazing from the start, two demanding hours going up, filled with strong emotions, partially due to the historical importance and partially to the exciting climb. The route is fully aided allowing for the upmost safety. Nevertheless, constant state of being vertical requires an excellent physical preparation and confidence.
Descent is along the long ledge, aided in parts with a long ladder, until reaching the ground.
