This is the classic Via Ferrata in the Dachstein region, and also a perfect warm-up tour for the Dachstein when starting at the Guttenberhaus.

 

Usually, the route starts at the Edelgrießhöhe, but you can start at either end. This impressively scenic Via Ferrata crosses summits and rock towers to the Gruberscharte in a breathtaking experience.

Safety information

Hiking Via Ferrata routes is a demanding sport in rugged terrain. For your safety, please observe the following rules: 

 

Via Ferrata routes are demanding and require a good level of fitness, no hight vertigo and sure-footedness. 

Always use a helmet and, a Via Ferrata kit to attach yourself to the safety rope. Many mountain rescue missions are a result of carelessness and bad weather conditions. 

Many routes require most of the day. When planning a tour, always include the possibility of a sudden change of weather. Be prepared: carry spare clothing and a good stock of food supplies. 

Always show respect towards fellow mountaineers. Inform them about possible dangers if need be. 

Take care of our environment. Only take photographs and memories with you - leave no trace.
