The Jubiläum via ferrata was build in 1991 and its varied passages lead along: the ridge, very exposed spots, and easier terrain in between.  Many mountaineers faced their limit on its steep cliff passage.

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.

So abwechslungsreich fand ich den Jubiläumssteig zum Eselstein gar nicht, eher ärgerlich. Zu oft muss man sich hier gegen blockigen Fels stemmen, was zwar grundsätzlich kein Thema wäre, aber keinen Spaß macht, wenn die Anker 30 cm aus dem Fels gucken, oft deutliche Bruchspuren im Fels drumherum zeigen und manchmal leicht zu wackeln scheinen. Auf Druck zu steigen, wenn du der Sicherung nicht traust (ist eigentlich die Hebelwirkung langer Anker bekannt?!), macht einfach keinen Spaß. Hinzu kam, dass der Steig 5 mal unterbrochen ist. Zwar ist dort jeweils nur leichte 1er Kletterei nötig (weswegen der Steig im Ramsauer KS-Führer auch als D+1 bezeichnet ist, aber ausgesetzt sind die Stellen trotzdem etwas. Wenn du dann denkst "jetzt ist der Steig zum 6. Mal unterbrochen", ist er tatsächlich schon zuende. Hier kommt man dann plötzlich an einen Trampelpfad, der über ein Schuttkar führt. Nur leider endet dieses an einer Abbruchkante, also wenn du (oder die Steine) rutschen, bist du weg. War mir nichts, ich bin lieber in ungesicherter 1er Kletterei rechts daneben hoch - und stand, oh Wunder, plötzlich am Gipfel. Keine Ahnung, wo dieser fragwürdige Trampelpfad (ging nach dem Schuttkar um eine Ecke) hinführt und ich will es aus o.g. Grund auch nicht wissen. Vom Gipfel runter geht es dann durch sehr viel Schottergelände, und das leider auch noch oft in der Falllinie. Ohne Stöcke kaum zu machen (dumm von mir, das Angebot der Ausleihe von Günther vom Guttenberghaus auszuschlagen) und ich bin froh, dass ich mich - trotz märchenhaft langsamer Fortbewegung - nur auf den Hosenboden und nicht "ganz abgesetzt" habe.
