We have something extra special for our Osttirol friends, fans, and guests: the memory-function on our website.
In the rocky terrain at the west of Burg Heinfels there is built in summer 2016 a family-friendly via ferrata with the Level B / C. Also a variant with difficulty D is there for people with mountain experience. From Sparmarkt Heinfels (parking area) is just few minutes away on foot.
This interesting path has been around since the time of the First World War and has been restored in the past few years by Italian mountaineers.
In terms of landscape this is an impressive tour, but with a decent 650m of climbing and 450m altitude, it is not suitable for children. The via ferrata route on the Große Kinigat is difficulty level A-D and is high alpine in character. The steep climbing sections up the Große Pfeiler and the difficult sections via slabs pack a punch and are not to be underestimated.
The remains of an old wooden ladder at the start are reminders of the once sparse protection available on the route to the Spitzenstein. In the past few years new, modern steel anchoring and a via ferrata route rope have been provided, which means another mountain in Hochpustertal is accessible via a via ferrata route – difficulty level A/B. The view from this most westerly Dolomite ridge summit is well worth it for the views which extend from Toblach to Lienz.
