    The De Luca-Innerkofler-Steig (Difficulty B) was built in the First World War and leads several hundred meters through the interior of the mountain. Here you definitely need a headlamp, because sometimes the studs are pitch dark. Leave the main tunnel at the fourth rock window and head for the actual via ferrata, which is mostly secured with a steel cable and leads you almost to the summit cross of the Paternkofel. The last meters you go over a boulder field. From the summit you have a perfect view of the famous north walls of the Drei Zinnen. Breathtaking. Because of the Three Peaks, the adjoining Auronzo hut and the ingenious climb itself, this is of course often overrun. Just a madness experience.

    The tunnels were driven in the First World War for the war of position between Austrian and Italian mountain hunters in the rock, where the soldiers remained under adverse conditions for months. A tunnel spilled today should have almost led up to the summit of Paternkofel. Since the tunnels sometimes lead upwards through steps in complete darkness, you have no chance, without a headlamp, to even get to the exit next to the large bunker. From there you should carry at least a simple climbing equipment despite being secured by steel cables
