Rocca Senghi Italien Via Ferrata

Last week I went to Turin (via train...of course!) to give a talk about OpenEnergyMonitor and run an energy monitor build workshop at the GreenTo sustainable universities event at University of Turin.  The event was interesting, although being able to speak more Italian would have been useful! We were well looked after by the organiser of the event, visiting a city and staying with local people is so much more fun!  
I managed to persuade Ryan to come with me to help out, promising tasty Italian food/wine and a day out in the alps...The promise did not disappoint! 

With Turin located so close to the alps it would be rude to go and play. A couple of hours drive from Turin get's you into the middle of the Italian alps on the border with France. Before the trip I spent 15min on Google searching out some possible Vai Ferrata options. One that caught my eye was Rocca Senghi Via Ferrata. It looked like it was south facing aspect and not too high so should be doable in winter conditions…
