#SCHLEGEIS131 – the world's most spectacular via ferrata climbing route


131 metres high, 1,260 anchor points for steps, handles and safety ropes have been bored and it is 200 metres long – the new via ferrata route in the Mayrhofen-Hippach holiday region. The unique aspect of this particular via ferrata is that it is not built on a rock face, but along the Schlegeis dam wall.


The project has been financed by Mayrhofen-Hippach Tourist Board in conjunction with VERBUND, Austria's leading electricity providers. This sensational via ferrata was built and will be maintained by Ginzling man and sport shop owner, Alfons Hörhager.


This is the first via ferrate to be built on a dam wall worldwide. With a difficulty rating of A/B (with a C variant) #SCHLEGEIS131 is suitable for everyone with a good head for heights.


Parking can be found at the crest of the dam, from where a footpath leads to the via ferrata entrance point.
