Via Ferrata Ivano Dibano

Woke up this morning at 3000m asl to cloud. A bit disappointed. I was hoping for a spectacular sunrise. But this was more than compensated by the breakfast Annamaria, the landlady at the Rif. Lorenzi, laid on. Dinner last night was equally as good. More than I could eat. Well almost.

Descended Monte Cristello on the via ferrata Ivano Dibano which uses the Zurlon ridge. Every route we walked walked this week has had connections with the 1915-17 Mountain War with Austria. The Ivano Dibano is no exception. It was originally an Italian route up the mountain to observation and lookout points. This was one of the more bigger remains. There was many smaller dugouts and bits of discarded barbed wire.

The route is named after Ivano Dibano was a local guide who died on Monte Cristello in 1968.
