The Rosina Via Ferrata is the most demanding one in the Silberkar Canyon. However, the gorgeous views across the surrounding mountains will certainly compensate for this endeavour.

The constructor of this protected climbing path, Hans Prugger, has created a vertical masterpiece, which heads straight up – after crossing a rope bridge – from the canyon to the exit.

 

With no hiking passages or ledges for a break, you need a lot of upper-body strength to get from the entrance to the top. Spend a perfect day out by combining the Via Ferratas: Hias, Siega, and Rosina. A little break at the Silberkarhütte will help to ease away the day’s activities.

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.

Turn-by-turn directions

Access: hike up the canyon to the 2nd rope bridge (past the entrance of the Via Ferrata ‘Hias‘). Entry to Rosina is along the canyon path.

Descent: from the exit, head up the footpath for about15 minutes until you reach the hiking trail. Take a right to the Silberkarhütte or to the Siega climbing path. From the Silberkarhütte, make your way back down the canyon. 

Please note: this is a demanding via ferrata route (unrelenting C/D). The degree of difficulty is the same as Hias; with no resting places however, this protected climbing path has to be taken even more seriously.
