Imster Klettersteig / Maldonkopf

Closed until further notice!
Basic information

A gorgeous, alpine via ferrata in the Lechtal Alps!

Great, solid limestone, sparingly with footholds, however perfectly secured and a fantastic, long and diverse route.

The via ferrata was renovated in 2018. The most difficult parts mitigated. The level of difficulty was reduced from E to D. A new rope bridge was installed and contributed to the via ferrata's attractiveness.

There is no emergency exit in 2018 anymore!

From the Maldonkopf you follow the stell rope towards the south. After ca. 100 meters the neu variant branches off to the right. The climb leads interestingly along steep slabs of rock and above all safely down into the Egelkar quite easily thanks to a lot of footholds.

The routing is now in a way so that the danger of rockfall was minimized. Nevertheless, also here - as usual - be very careful and take into consideration people climbing below you!

The securing end below an overhanging rockwall, on a safe place so to say. From there you can go down the debris field/Kar.

Below, the path is clearly visible then and marked. If you want to return to the Muttekopfhut, then follow the path below the rocks further to the right (towards Scharnitzsattel) and there you get comfortably to the path to the hut.

Arrival and public transport

Exit the motorway A12 at Imst and take the entry/driveway 4 (look at the map) up to Hoch-Imst. With the lift up to the summit station of the Alpjoch and via the Drischlsteig (exposed - Caution with children) in 30 minutes to the Muttekopf Hut. From there towards the Scharnitzsattel until the entry point (well marked).

Alternatively directly from the Hahtennjoch to the Scharnitzsattel, then shortly downwards to the entry point of the via ferrata.
