Title :
Totes Gebrige - Grosser Priel & Spitzmauer (2.5 days)
Date :
Sat 09.06.2018
Type of event :
Klettersteig (Via Ferrata)
Organized by :
Mateusz Zoltak
Description :

A great classic - leave Vienna on early Friday afternoon and reach the Prielschutzhaus, on Saturday reach the Grosser Priel through the Bert-Rinesch-Steig (C/D), on Sunday reach the Spitzmauer via the Stodertaler Steig (B, short) and go back home.

According to Bergsteigen.com, the Bert-Rinesch-Steig is "long (3.5h / 670m), steep and difficult, and is one of the biggest and most challenging Via Ferratas of the Alps". It's a great classic. When it was built in 1994 and at that time it was told "the last great ferrata in the East Alps which needed to be built" :-)

The Stodertaler Steig is just a short shortcut (45m / 200m) making hike on the Spitzmauer more enjoyable.

There is an option to use the hut's lift to transport backpacks up/down.

You can find photos here, here & here.

Remarks:

  • Please be aware that this trip is only suitable for people having dome experinece in Via Ferratas and fit enough for this long climb!
  • As it will still be spring, we are extremaly likekly to encounter snow on the way down from the Grosser Priel. To make sure we can do it safely the equipment list includes crampons. The ferrata itself should be snow-free - higher parts are simply to steep to keep snow.
