Description :

Hohe Wand is usually not considered as a full day hiking destination, but it offers multiple short,  interesting approches, many of them also easy via ferrata-s. We will combine some of them into a nice, not too long, late-autumn easy via-ferrata hike:

We will start with Wahringersteig (C - optional), continue on Drobilsteig (A), and at the top try short Ganghofersteig (C/D - optional). Then we will descend towards Loderhof and ascend via beautiful Hanselsteig (B). We will have lunch at Herrgottschnitzerhaus, and then descend via Zischkasteig to our starting point.

Surefootedness required. For participants that would like to do Wahringersteig and Ganghofersteig (both are optional and can be skipped) also via ferrata set, harness and helmet are mandatory. For Hanselsteig mandatory in case you don't have experience climbing via ferratas.
