A wonderful via ferrata in the granite of the Sellrainer mountains, which leads to the 2807 m high Pockkogel. The altitude and the north facing position and the rather cool temperatures associated with it make for a high overall requirement. However, a sensational panoramic view awaits you at the end of the via ferrata. In the first section you immediately come to a key point with a degree of difficulty C/D. In the second sector a good part in grade D can be mastered. There are less steps there, but excellent rock with natural holds. The summit climb up the north face is certainly the highlight of this climbing tour. On the unsecured passages between section 1 and section 2 and on the descent, a head for heights and surefootedness are required.
Leave the Inntal motorway A 12 Kufstein-Landeck at the exit Zirl Ost. Drive on the Sellrainer Straße L 13 to Kühtai. Or from the Ötztal valley, leave the roundabout in Ötz towards Ochsengarten/Kühtai and take the L 237 to Kühtai. Park in the Drei-Seen-Bahn car park. Take the Drei-Seen-Bahn up to the top station. Follow the signs for Gaiskogel/Klettersteig and the red markings at the foot of the Gaiskogelscharte over the scree field to the entrance.
Follow the marked normal path, southwest, down to a saddle. From there, descend to the Finstertal reservoir and in the area of the dam wall turn right to the Drei-Seen-Hütte. From there descend to Kühtai.
