The Sinabell was constructed in June 2012, and it is top-secured by metal foothold pegs and bars.

Sinabell's impressive southwest-facing wall can be seen from afar. At the summit, an alpine meadow, filled with flowers and grazing sheep, invites you to take a break with wonderful views across mountaintops from the Enns Valley and the Schladminger Tauern to the high-alpine terrain of 'Am Stein'.

Comments:

Due to constant C-rated via ferrata passages, especially for climbers with less experience, this via ferrata seems even harder. As a day-tour from the valley, due to the long hike up involving an over 1000 m vertical gain, this via ferrata is physically very demanding. If you include an ovenight at the Guttenberghaus, it becomes a beautiful half-day tour.

Safety information

Hiking via Ferrata routes is a demanding sport in rugged terrain. For your safety, please observe the following rules: 

  • Via Ferrata routes are demanding and require a good level of fitness, no hight vertigo and sure-footedness. 
  • Always use a helmet and, a via Ferrata kit to attach yourself to the safety rope. Many mountain rescue missions are a result of carelessness and bad weather conditions. 
  • Many routes require most of the day. When planning a tour, always include the possibility of a sudden change of weather. Be prepared: carry spare clothing and a good stock of food supplies. 
  • Always show respect towards fellow mountaineers. Inform them about possible dangers if need be. 
  • Take care of our environment. Only take photographs and memories with you - leave no trace.

Sehr schöner Steig. Die Bank war die Überraschung, da ich vorher die Kommentare nicht gelesen hatte. Mit Zu-und Abstieg aus dem Tal und Pausen knapp 8 h benötigt. Danke!

Toller Steig, auch hier feinste Reibungsturnerei wie beim Siega (oberhalb der Silberkarklamm) und kurz vor dem Ausstieg nette Bank mit toller Aussicht.
