Ambitious via ferrata hikers ideally connect the „Elferkofel-via ferrata“ with the “Nordwand-via ferrata” on the Elferturm.
The securities are mainly of brackets and spikes, whereby an adequate security is only given by rope team association. Until Elferkofel summit there are several by-pass possibilities. Surefootedness and basic climbing experience (also for descent) are essential. Partly exposed, but wonderful ridge climbing.
