A modern sports via ferrata in alpine terrain, in primary rock, optimally secured.
Suitable only for children aged 12 and upwards, with appropriate securing.
Emergency exit: Only possible in the first third.
Ca. 60 minutes along the path, 2 short passages are pathless, further descent to the Birkhahnbahn or to the Kopssee. The descent is alpine and partly steep, appropriate experience is necessary. From the summit cross you follow the via ferrata for a short bit along the ridge and then along the trail tracks and the short pathless passages down. Orientate yourself along the stone piles (stone dwarves/stone manikins).
At the end of the rope, a small part along the ridge and then through rocky terrain to a saddle, a short part down to the south, then traverse the grassy slope to the next saddle. On the other side of the ridge leads a path to the junction to the via ferrata.
