Via Ferrata Siega

Open

The Siega via ferrata, passing through the Karwand rock wall, was opened at the end of July 2008.

Over two weeks of construction, 260 metres of steel cable and numerous pegs were mounted. No modern elements, such as rope bridges, were added to this classic sports Via Ferrata. The route is named after Siegmund, the owner of the Stangalm.

In some places, the rock is very crumbly. For experienced via ferrata fans, the combination of all 3 via ferratas in the Silberkarklamm is ideal, with Siega Klettersteig guaranteeing a great conclusion.
