Via Ferrata Gjaidstein

Open

This is a very beautiful, not too difficult summit path, well protected by steel cables.

Very beautiful, easy and well-secured summit ascent to one of most scenic lookout points close to the Dachstein cable car. The via ferrata leads you along the mostly not-too-steepsouth ridge of the Hoher Gjaidstein in the process. The ridge hike to the Kleiner Gjaidstein is eas,with some passages providing permanent safety features.

Comments:

Due to the short hike from the mountain station of the Dachstein cable car along with the minimal technical difficulty, also highly suited for beginners and childern. However, please bear in mind the elevation (ca. 3000 m above sea level) and risk of thunderstorms.
