Title :
Heukuppe from the north
Date :
Sun 13.05.2018
Type of event :
Klettersteig (Via Ferrata)
Organized by :
Mateusz Zoltak
Description :

A long hike top the top of the Rax combined with two easy ferratas.

We will go trough the rarely visited north-western parts of Rax heading south from Hinternasswald, passing the Wildfahrte ferrata (A/B), going on Gamseck (1857) and finally the highest peak of Rax - the Heukuppe (2007). Our way back leads again trough the Gamseck, then Gamsecksteig (A/B), Nasskam and back to the Hinternasswald.

The route isn't technically difficult but all in all it's a very long hike (~16 km long but also ~1350 m altitude difference).

The part from Gamseck to Heukuppe can be easily skipped allowing to save ~2.5 km and 150 m altitude difference.
