Via ferrata routes in the Lienz Dolomites

The climbing paradise of the Lienz Dolomites

“Unfriendly”, is how the Lienz Dolomites were described in earlier times on account of their strange, wild rock shapes, have always been a paradise for climbers and mountaineers. Via ferrata routes, a somewhat easier was of ascending the cliffs, has been booming for a few years. Alpinforum Lienz has in the interim been refurbished and re-built into quite a number of excellent via ferrata routes, treating guests to the Dolomite town with a special adrenaline rush in the summer season.

Via ferrata Verborgene Welt

The 'Hidden world' via ferrata route built in 2015 heads spectacularly past at waterfall. The Klapffall has formed over centuries, cutting deeply into the rocks and is therefore an eroded gorge system. The entrance is close to the standard hiking trail from the gorge bridge to Kerschbaumeralm bothy.

Via ferrata Endorphin Galitzenklamm

On a height of 400 meters and a track duration of about 1.5 hours, the via ferrata offers exciting passages on walls and slabs. With child-friendly steps and distances, the via ferrata inspires also younger athletes for the climbing sports. The level of difficulty of the ascent is marked with C and the descent is marked with A / B.

Via ferrata Glödis

A fantastic panoramic view from the loveliest summit of the Schober group is the reward for the longer climb. The via ferrata route is not that difficult, the length of the tour and the thin air above
3000m does however require a good level of fitness and mountain experience.

Via ferrata Spitzkofel

To make the impressive local mountain in Lienz more easily accessible, a few steel cables and iron brackets have been set up in the rocky terrain – in the south gorge initially across rocky sections up to the little Linderhüttl on the summit ridge (curiously enough the oldest both in the Lienz Dolomites). In the crossover to the main summit there is then a further steel cable section at the steep descent into the Spitzkofelscharte.

Spitzkofel via ferrata route

The Spitzkofel, at 2717m, and the Spitzkofel group, dominate Lienz and Drautal and in earlier times it was regarded as the key summit in the Lienz Dolomites. Its five-tor north ridge was in times past a key position for extreme climbing. To get to Lienz’s

Panorama via ferrata route

The Panorama-via ferrata route is a combination of the 'Sepp-Oberlechner-Gedächtnisweg trail' (from Kl. Laserzkopf to Gr. Sandspitze) with the 'Gebirgsjägersteig' and the 'Ari-Schübel-Steig' on the south side of the Gr. and Kl. Sandspitze. To cross the highest located ridge in the Lienz Dolomites, with seven summits of between 2690 m and 2772 m, a good level of fitness, sure-footedness and experience in the mountains is definitely required. Superb views to the mountains in East Tyrol and breath-taking views into the distance from the highest summits in the Lienz Dolomites!
