The Rosina Via Ferrata is the most demanding one in the Silberkar Canyon. However, the gorgeous views across the surrounding mountains will certainly compensate for this endeavour.
The constructor of this protected climbing path, Hans Prugger, has created a vertical masterpiece, which heads straight up – after crossing a rope bridge – from the canyon to the exit.
With no hiking passages or ledges for a break, you need a lot of upper-body strength to get from the entrance to the top. Spend a perfect day out by combining the Via Ferratas: Hias, Siega, and Rosina. A little break at the Silberkarhütte will help to ease away the day’s activities.
Since there are no rest areas, the climb is much more serious than Hias and Siega Via Ferratas. Anyone who has already had difficulties on the Hias via ferrata should not attempt the Rosina via ferrata.
Arriving from the west:From the west you can take the Munich-Salzburg motorway, continuing on the Tauern motorway (A 10) until the Ennstal junction. From here take the Ennstal A-road (the B 320) for around 30 km into the Schladming-Dachstein region, then take the Ramsau am Dachstein turn-off. Then straight ahead 4 km and directly after the bridge turn left and follow "Silberkarklamm" signs.
Arriving from the north:From the south-east take the Pyhrnautobahn motorway (A 9) to the Liezen junction and then the Ennstal A-road (B 320) into the Schladming-Dachstein region. Then take the Ramsau am Dachstein turn-off. Then straight ahead 4 km and directly after the bridge turn left and follow "Silberkarklamm" signs.
After approaching means of the Hias via ferrata, hike up through the Silberkarklamm to the next rope brideg on the right-hand side, crossing the stream.
from the exit, head up the footpath for about15 minutes until you reach the hiking trail. Take a right to the Silberkarhütte or to the Siega climbing path. From the Silberkarhütte, make your way back down the canyon.
The starting point can be reached by hiking bus (in operation from 25.6.2022). From the bus stop "Ramsau Silberkarklamm" short walk up to the gorge entrance.
