Men have traditionally dominated climbing. Why is that? If anyone thinks that girls simply lack the courage to face the sport then think again! In fact, it appears that the female species is indeed particularly gifted at the art climbing. Climbing requires diverse and complex movements, a proper mindset and complete focus to recognise often seemingly difficult routes. What we enjoy most of all, is that even us ladies, finally get the chance to switch off completely – you should give it a try!
Even if you have never climbed before – today is the day! Together with experienced mountain guides, we are aiming high! We show you all you need to know when climbing, and how to deal with the fear of heights (if you currently suffer from that).
Via Ferrata for beginners – Moutain adventure at the waterfall
An approximately 1 hour hike leads you from the Expo area to the Haselgehr waterfall. After a short introduction, a gentle via ferrata follows the waterfall to a rappelling station. Thereafter you will find a suspension bridge, Flying Fox, a moderately difficult via ferrata as well as another rappelling station and climbing stations. This is followed by a hike back to the Expo area.
Via Ferrata: Seebenwand
We start at the Expo area with a 1,5 hour hike to the entrance of the via ferrata. We will climb 3 hours on a vertical wall along the Seeben waterfall. A difficult climbing trail only for experienced climbers! Already the start has D/E tracks! The descent is possible via the Seebensee/Hoher Gang or the Immensteig depending on the wishes and strength of the group.
Via Ferrata: Stopselzieher
The ascent starts on the ski slopes and continues on Gamskar to the second stage. After about 3 hours, partly through rocky terrain, you will reach the Neustädter Hütte (a short stop is possible here). Continue to “Stopselzieher” – there you will find a via ferrata with partially secured and unsecured terrain that leads to the old Kamm station (easy climbing in unsecured terrain required!). Then the via ferrata continues to the German border.
