Via Ferrata trip

Just got back from Italian Via Ferrata trip. Stayed at San Martino in the Dolomites and did some high level stuff (requiring ice axe and crampons) and also some at Lake Garda, including Via Attrazetta Rino Pisetta on a very hot day (32C), video clips below.... Another clip of Pisetta... Above clips are high on the route, about 3 hours in... Below is of start of the route. A Czech guy in red that we met on route seemed unsure to begin with... This is Via Ferrata Porton:

Many thanks to ShahHusseinKCL for this chart. Controversial obviously, but look where philosophy is placed. This chart draws on diagrams that I previously posted here .
