Scenic Insider tip classic via ferrata
Renovated in 2009, this via ferrata is an exciting and challenging adventure for the whole family with the difficulty B. After a short hike you can reach the small gorge and follow the brook "Rotschitza".

Author’s recommendation

Be careful in the entry area at the waterfall because of rockfall - NEVER get in after or in heavy rain! Highly recommended are the guided climbing tours through the alpine schools listed below.

Viel Spass noch beim Klettern am Faaker See. Nicht vergessen....auch der Kanzianiberg und der Klettergarten Peterlewand am Ossiacher See versprechen Klettervergnügen vom Feinsten!
