A demanding via ferrata with highly exposed passages in vertical and partly overhanging walls. The airy route allows dizzyingly deep views, numerous footholds and a good, continuous rope belay ensure sufficient safety.
The Reinhard Schiestl via ferrata on the Burgsteinwand near Längenfeld is one of Tyrol's coldest sport via ferratas. Over a length of only 300 m, the route is continuous, extremely exposed, airy and steep – adrenaline rush included. The vertical granite wall measures almost 200 m, which is conquered with the help of a continuous rope guide and numerous steps. Several rest areas along the route provide short breaks before the next sweaty climbs. The key section – a steep, exposed and long slope (D) – over the gushing abyss – awaits the via ferrata climber only halfway up, and we also look in vain for escape routes here. The Reinhard Schiestl via ferrata is therefore exclusively an adventure for experienced and giddy climbers.
