Fantastic via ferrata tour along the ridge to the fourth highest peak of the Karwendel mountains at 2726 m.

The two peaks of the Kleinen Bettelwurf and Gro&szlig Bettelwurf rise majestically above the Halltal valley near Innsbruck. If you want to explore the 200-metre-high peaks, you can do so on a spectacular Überschreitung. However, a combination of via ferrata sections and unsecured climbing passages require surefootedness and alpine experience. The picturesque loop can be ideally combined with the ascent to the Bettelwurfhütte via the Absamer Klettersteig the day before to make a two-day tour.

Sehr schöne Tour. Den kleinen Bettelwurf kann man auch noch mitnehmen. 4 Stunden ist sehr ambitioniert. Eher 5,5 Stunden, wenn man sich sichert. Der Klettersteig am großen Bettelwurf ist kein Anfänger-Klettersteig
