Give Climbing a Try: Stripsenjoch - Rock Climbing/Via Ferrata
We are excited to share our passion for climbing with you! A certified mountain guide will teach you everything you need to know to get started on Via Ferrata climbing and some easy rock climbing. No prior experience required.
This tour brings us to the foot of the Wilder Kaiser’s spectacular rock walls. Leaving Griesner Alm, we hike up to the foot of Fleischbank and Totenkirchl. Your climbing guide will begin with a short gear and safety lesson to get you acquainted with the equipment. After a refueling break at Stripsenjochhütte we will hike to the nearby practice climbing area on Stripsenkopf where we will show you how to ascend a Via Ferrata safely.
