Once past the metal suspension bridge, the climbing route leads on over ramps up to the “Hoachwool” where you will see the ancient larch wood channels and trenches of the historic irrigation canals. Then you come to an exposed wall which needs good technique and top physical condition. After this difficult part, an easier passage gives wonderful views of nearby, imposing Juval Castle and the lovely surrounding vegetation. Then, on up a ladder to reach the Wandbuch grotto and the final stretch just beneath the Hofl farmhouse. After reaching the top, follow the fence to the right as far as the railings. Then you have a choice of two ways down. If you want to stay high up and have excellent views of the Norderberg, walk on up to the Unterstell cable-car mountain station (20 min.) and take the cable-car back down into the valley or, if you prefer, walk back down along path no. 10 (1 hour) to the Unterstell cable-car car park.

Getting there

Climbers can get to the wall in their own cars which they can leave at the Unterstell cable car car park in Kompatsch. From there, walk approx. 20 minutes along the Schienen water irrigation channel path past the Schnalserhof farm and the Vinschger Bauernladen. Then turn right along the banks of the stream and past the Juval Klettergarten to reach the first part of the climb itself. After about 250 metres, cross the metal Seilbrucke suspension bridge which takes you high up above the Senales stream.
