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.
