Hunerscharte

Open
Die Hunerscharte ist erst ab Ende Juni bis ca. Ende September begehbar. Klettersteig Schwierigkeit A/B. Dieser Klettersteig ist in beide Richtungen begehbar. 

The climb up to the Hunerscharte is a well-known way to reach Dachstein glacier from the south, with permanent safety features for the final 200 vertical meters. For mountaineers in good condition, it leads directly to the Sky Walk Klettersteig, though is also a very attractive way to reach the Koppenkarstein Westgrat Klettersteig

More information

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. Drive through the Ramsau Village and then turn left to Dachstein toll road. Continue up to the parking place Türlwand Hütte.

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. Drive through the Ramsau Village and then turn left to Dachstein toll road. Continue up to the parking place Türlwand Hütte.

Approach

From the valley station of the Dachstein cable car via a pleasant path leading to the Dachstein Südwandhütte. Shortly before the hut, turn right. Path No. 615 will lead you across a scree-covered cirque (the "Schwardering"), involving a rather arduous climb to the start of the actual via ferrata.

Descent

The same way you came or enjoy a comfortable ride down the mountain on the Dachstein cable car.

Do the via ferrata of Koppenkarstein Westgrad or Sky Walk.
