The via ferrata has been built in 1986 and belongs to the most beautiful and interesting via ferrata of Austria. Originally “Extra’s” change with exposed passages, cleverly getting over the steep “Dolomite-style” rock. The access is very long from both sides, so the Innsbruck Hut is an ideal base. Commendable is the 2-days excursion by passing the “Elferkofel via ferrata” the day before with overnight stay in the hut. The descent from the Ilmspitze leads unfortunately through very uncomfortable, brashly territory, in early summer there could be remaining snow. As well as the via ferrata, the descent demands absolute foot-sureness and experience. So not suitable for inexperienced hikers and children!

Accesses:

From Neustift (locality Neder) leads a signposted, long road towards south into the upper valley to mountain inn Pinnisalm (2 h walking time or drive-up by taxi;)

Upwards on signposted walking trail towards south and ascent to Pinnisjoch (2370m, just behind there is located the Innsbrucker Hut). Now towards north-east along the signposted, rocky ridge up- and downwards to the access just behind a little material cot.

Route course:

Behind the material cot starts a little gorge, which is built by an upstream pylon. In the gorge short way upwards to the steep entry wall.

Descent:

The upper part of the via ferrata climbing down to the crossing of the signposted descent at the last big break. Brashly, exposed bends (partly secured, A) lead angular downwards to a detrital gorge. Over secured step (B) and uncomfortable steep area to the bottom of the wall. Back towards south on exposed path below the walls and short two-way ascent to the access, further on as accesses.

14.10.2018. Dieser Track stimmt, unser Meinung nach, nicht. Bitte um Prüfung! Wir haben am Vortag drei Jungs getroffen die den Einstieg laut Track gesucht und nicht gefunden haben. Haben uns dann bei den Einheimischen erkundigt - der einzige Weg ist von der Innsbrucker Hütte. Ausserdem passt die Beschreibung zum Track nicht. Wir haben von der Hütte zum Kreuz 2:45 gebraucht, sind dann auch über den Klettersteig abgestiegen da es extrem windig war und außer uns keine Leute da waren. Zustieg ist meistens nicht seilversichert, zum Teil sehr abschüssig, Klettersteig selbst fast durchgehend versichert, Seile nicht so fest gespannt, aber daran gewöhnt man sich bald. Nichtsdestotrotz hat der Steig dem Habicht vom Vortag fast die Show gestohlen. Sehr interessant angelegter Steig, beeindruckende Tour, geniale Panorama.

Eigentlich sehr schöner Steig mit tollen Blicken - in Erinnerung bleibt jedoch leider vor allem der ekelhafte und bröckelige Abstieg!! Zudem würde ich den Steigteil kurz unterhalb des Gipfels in dem sich auch der Klemmblock befindet persönlich äußerst ungern begehen wenn sich über mir weitere Kletterer im Steig befinden... Zeitansatz von/bis zur Innsbrucker Hütte: ~ 5 h
