Access

Once we arrive in Nassereith, we drive to the climbing crag paid parking lot.

Approach to start

From the parking lot, follow the clear signs to the start of the via ferrata, located to the right of the climbing crag. Before reaching the rock wall, put on your helmet because there are chamois above the route that can dislodge stones unexpectedly.

The route

The route traverses some smooth slabs, a wire bridge, and ultimately crosses the wall to the right, leading to the exit. Arm strength is required to ascend in certain spots. Metal steps are very few and you will rely on friction climbing on the slabs.

Descent

From the exit, descend the scree slope via the zigzag path and keep your helmet on until you rejoin the approach trail at the bottom. Follow this trail back to the parking lot.
