Rise with the cable car „Freccia nel cielo“ to the last station on 3190m. We go over the steel stairs up and follow a large path to the top of Tofana di Mezzo (3244m). We go back to the crossing with the sign „Formenton“. There starts the via ferrata.

The descent over the east-slope requires attention and sure-footedness (partially secured). We follow the marking number 407 to the crossing below the cable car station and turn right to the station on 2470m. We go down with the cable car.
