The bridge

Just seconds before the mountains descend into darkness for the next 10 hours, the 27-meter (90-foot) suspension bridge of the Ivano Dibona via ferrata is silhouetted against a moody Dolomites sky. Being high in these mountains, perched above a deep gorge on an old and rusty bridge is nothing short of spooky, Boscoe says. “However, my feeling of being unnerved must be nothing compared to the emotions felt by soldiers moving through these mountains a hundred years ago. When travelling here late in the day we risk passing a cold night in the mountains without a sleeping bag, which is trivial to what they must have risked. Mountains always remind us how small we really are, never more so than in the Dolomites.”
