The Kali via ferrata is the ideal entry point for children from the age of 7 to make their first attempts on the rock. It reaches a maximum difficulty of B on the easiest variant, although short and steep variants up to C/D are also possible on the so-called "Gemsenturm". However, these are not mandatory and can be easily bypassed.

To be safe on the way and to enjoy every moment in the mountains is the motto.

 

Wednesday: Via ferrata beginners course "Kids climbing on the Sattelberg" for children (from 7 years). You can find more information under Schladming - Dachstein.
