Via Ferrata in the Dolomites: what’s not to love?

With a little something for everyone - from the unencumbered and continual flow of movement over technical rock, to a feast of caffé, hefeweizens, and local cuisine at a rifúgio atop the climb, to the chance to follow in the historic footsteps of not only alpininsts but WWI troops through caves, bunkers, outposts, and trenches, to grand sweeping landscapes - via ferrata in the Dolomites will not disappoint. 
As luck would have it, we had the opportunity to experience the Dolomites through a handful of vie ferrate, and found ourselves giddy from the continual flow and movement over enjoyable limestone climbing (and one volcanic via ferrata) pushing into the 5.5 technical rock range.  Via ferrata may be a perfect way to learn to move through rock terrain quickly and efficiently if you sustain from hauling yourself up the cable (unless you feel it absolutely necessary). 
But get there early or plan to bail, otherwise you might experience a “Space Mountain” like line up 200+m of via ferrata.  It’s popular and for good reason.

  2. Your lay guess wins if anybody besides Tiger Woods wins, and loses if Tiger Woods does win the event. This means, if DC United came back to win, the guess you positioned after they had been dropping 2-0 would win, while your authentic guess on NYCFC would lose. For instance, BetMGM could worth the Buffalo Bills to beat the New York Jets at +300 with a -6.5 factors spread, while FanDuel could worth https://thekingofdealer.com/pharaoh-casino/ the Jets to win with a +6.5 point spread at +200. The Phillies are driving excessive after beating the Astros 7-0 yesterday in Philadelphia and took a 2-1 sequence lead in the process. WynnBet is another internationally recognized name in gambling, but it faces stiff competitors from well-established, well-funded, and more experienced operators.
