This Via Ferrata is among the most difficult in the Eastern Alps. Not only does it take a good deal of courage but it also requires considerable arm strength to scramble up.

Safety information

Hiking Via Ferrata routes is a demanding sport in rugged terrain. For your safety, please observe the following rules: 

  • Via Ferrata routes are demanding and require a good level of fitness, no hight vertigo and sure-footedness. 
  • Always use a helmet and, a Via Ferrata kit to attach yourself to the safety rope. Many mountain rescue missions are a result of carelessness and bad weather conditions. 
  • Many routes require most of the day. When planning a tour, always include the possibility of a sudden change of weather. Be prepared: carry spare clothing and a good stock of food supplies. 
  • Always show respect towards fellow mountaineers. Inform them about possible dangers if need be. 
  • Take care of our environment. Only take photographs and memories with you - leave no trace.
