Title :
Gebirgsvereins - Klettersteig
Date :
Sat 28.04.2018
Type of event :
Klettersteig (Via Ferrata)
Organized by :
Mateusz Zoltak
Description :

The most entertaining ferrata on the Hohe Wand.
Not too short (200 m up)  and quite difficult (D), with many different rock formations and a rope bridge.

As this is a D difficulty route some previous ferrata experience is needed for this hike.

Looking at the webcams the Hohe Wand is snow-free even at the moment so it will be a typical summer-conditions hike.

As it's a quick hike (<3 h up and down) we can extend it with another ferratas on Hohe Wand if we want (e.g. the Wahringer Steig or try the Blutspur).
