The “Edelweiß via ferrata” is a relatively short but interesting via ferrata (also botanically very precious – name!) nearby the hut, but not recommendable at wetness because of many earthy passages.
Distance 0.3 km
To Franz Senn Hut: 1,5 h / 410 Hm. From parking short way into the valley, then by many hair-pin bends over steep hillside; Further on crossing long alpine pastures, passing an impressive waterfall to the hut;
To via ferrata Edelweiß: 10 Min. From the hut over stream and towards north following the path tracks to the access on the deepest point of a “pillar-like” wall formation (signposted).
Alle drei Klettersteige lassen sich locker innerhalb eines halben Tages miteinander verbinden und rechtfertigen somit einen Besuch der gut ausgebauten Franz-Senn-Hütte.
