Friedberger Klettersteig

Basic information

If you want to climb the Rote Flüh in a more exposed position, you can try the Friedberger Klettersteig. This tour is mostly done from the Schartschrofen, but then you have the hardest part of the descent. But also from the Gimpelhaus the ascent is very popular. An alternative is also the ascent via the Adlerhorst, where you can constantly have a longing look at the cool waters of the Haldensee, but this variant is a somewhat longer round tour.

The difficulties are located at the short but crisp SO wall of the coulter.

The steep passage at the Schartschrofen, which is very prone to rock falls, should not be underestimated! Due to its southern exposure, the via ferrata can usually be accessed early in the year - also in the opposite direction from the Gimpelhaus. The ascent via the Adlerhorst is a long round trip, during which you always have the Haldensee in view.

required climbing time
1 h 30 min

From the parking lot you follow the path to the Ghf. Adlerhorst and in the direction of Füssener Jöchl. Shortly before the Jöchl, turn right to the summit of the Schartschrofen - the via ferrata begins right on the summit. Alternatively from the mountain station to the Schartschrofen summit (approx. 45 min.).

From the summit take the normal route (short insured passages A) down into the cirque and on to the Gimpelhaus. From the Gimpelhaus steeply back to Nesselwängle and just before the village turn right to the car park.
