Description

This via ferrata route which has been in existence since 1986 was expanded a few years ago to create a more extreme variant at the start (D/E – overhanging ladders). The “normal”

start in contrast has been set up at a difficulty level of B/C. Right before the longest ladder (17 m)

both variants come together again. Continue in the sturdy rock area, which is well-secured to the summit cross, where you can enjoy an outstanding panoramic view to the many three-thousand metre mountains in East Tyrol.


Difficult sections: C – difficult start - variants D/E.

Equipment: Complete via ferrata equipment and helmet.
