Sun 31.03.2019
Type of event :
Klettersteig (Via Ferrata)

Mateusz Zoltak
Description :

A short C/D ferrata an hour from Vienna.
As the ferrata ends on 550m (only 70m heigher then Kahlenberg), snow should be already gone.

As it is a beginning of the season and the ferrata is very short we will focus a little more on a technique, e.g. practice abseiling and try to improve our layback techinique.

This hike is not a good choice for people who have no previous experience with climbing-like activities (climbing, ferrata, more demanding scrambling). If you are such a person, please wait for a simpler ferrata hike.
