    Funnily enough, my dream is to be able to do the Via Feretta before I lose the ability to. (I have a rare disease that affects my spinal cord & optc nerve.) The first time I saw a photo of the Via Feretta, I knew this was at the top of my bucket list. I am an avid reader of everything mountaineering & this has inspired me to want to age that experience before it’s too late.

    Needing a wheelchair, my goal has been to find a hike that’s accessible in the mountains, and this looks like it. Sure I know I can’t climb anywhere, but just to smell the crisp mountain air and hear the wind rush atop would be great (Before my injury 10 yrs ago, The Chief used to be my favorite local hike)
