Steinwand - Arzl im Pitztal

Basic information

The via ferrata is reachable within 10 mintues from a parking place near the valley entrance of the Pitztal. The easy variant leads towards the right after the access and is the ideal preparation for the more difficult route on the left side.

You climb up the stone wall in three sections. Hence, it is possible to either do a round tour in the wall or walk down comfortably to the valley.

The beginning is promising. Over an edge with a view to the valley, you climb up and later you reach the junction via a traverse.

The second part is very demanding. Within the difficulty level of C and D+, the route utilises the natural formations, levels and plates of the partly outwards expanding rock.

For families, the rope stretches toward the west over a ramp. Both variants rejoin at the exit. Hence, different variations are possible and the easier part can be used as a descent to make a round trip.


Various trials lead comfortably down to the valley. For the shortest distance back to the parking space, walk from the transmitter a small section on the wide path downwards and then turn right to Arzl.
