Via Ferrata Jubiläum

Open

The Via Ferrata Jubiläums-Klettersteig was built in 1991 and leads through the south face of the Eselstein.

 

 

The Jubiläum via ferrata was build in 1991 and its varied passages lead along: the ridge, very exposed spots, and easier terrain in between.  Many mountaineers faced their limit on its steep cliff passage.

Comments:

A very well-designed via ferrata meeting every expectation, though not suited for inexperienced climbers or childer. Very strenous and exposed at some parts.
