Route C of the via ferrata Schweifinen leads up a vertical rock wall via a wobbly and swinging cable ladder: a step up in terms of both interest and difficulty. Next comes an exposed section with nothing under climbers’ feet other than the iron rungs fastened to the rock. Since completing the three routes A, B and C requires time, stamina and a good level of fitness, climbers should plan carefully in advance and take account of weather conditions.
Important! Follow the route all the way to the end, to the official footpath.
Monitor the weather carefully and note any risk of storm: such conditions can be deadly on a via ferrata.
Tip: “Be searchable”. Equip yourself with an additional RECCO rescue reflector*. Whether summer or winter. Available in our Online-Shop or our information desk.
*The additional reflector does not replace an avalanche beacon.
Important! A good head for heights, a sure foot and mountain experience are all needed
