Title :
Ferrata in Großes Höllental
Date :
Sun 09.09.2018
Type of event :
Klettersteig (Via Ferrata)
Organized by :
Mateusz Zoltak
Description :

We will climb Rax trough one of ferratas in the Großes Höllental (Alpenvereinssteig or Gaislochsteig - both start and end in the same place and are of same difficulty). Then we can stop at Otto Haus and take Wachthüttelkammsteig down.

Alpenvereinssteig is one of the oldest ferrata in Alps - it was built in 1910 by the Otto Haus owner to increase number of tourists passing trough his hut :-)

It's an easy (B) ferrata hike so no previous ferrata experience is required.

It's quite a long hike with quite some elevation gain, so you should be fit enough.
