A samall, sporty and rather "zesty" via ferrata close to the valley, making it very suitable for climbers who are not necessarly athletes. The via ferrata itself is short but sweet. The natural setting was used to perfection - two beatiful rope bridges and some steepish rockfaces are the result. The gorge is a grat family hike. Whilst sportierfamily can simply enjoy the trail through the gorge.

Please note: the gorge is privately owned by the Erlbacher family. The entrance fee is used to repair the path and maintain the via ferratas.

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.

Schön angelegter Klettersteig und an einem schönen Tag wie der 09.09 2017 war, kann man den Rosina und den Siega- Klettersteig gleich mit gehen 👍😃

PS: wem das zu sehr Standardprogramm ist und wer gerne auf Reibung turnt - unbedingt noch den Siega (kurz oberhalb der Silberkarhütte) machen!
