Numerous climbing installations, widely ramified trenches, remains of old positions, rock caverns hollowed out into bunkers and military cemeteries are reminders of the terrible times between 1915 and 1918.
At that time, thousands of men had to endure summer and winter at altitudes between 2,000m and 2,700m, carry up large quantities of ammunition and weapons and live in makeshift shelters in the most adverse conditions. In the process, many have lost their lives, often very young. In addition to enemy attacks, avalanche accidents, disease and frostbite also took their toll. The parts of the path that were destroyed over the course of decades have been restored since 1974 - to form a single connecting path that today serves to bring together mountain enthusiasts from all over the world.
