This long, moderate via ferrata was built in spring 2018 alongside the impressively big waterfall Fallbach. Climbers master the wall of rock on the right side of the waterfall and are rewarded with breath-taking views and a sensational climbing experience. The via ferrata is not difficult in technique, but hides a lot of C/D and C sections and especially the length makes this route a challenge also for experienced climbers. The lesson is clear: the via ferrata at the waterfall Fallbach is nothing for beginners, but a must do for climbers with enough power!
Via ferrata is recently closed.
Steep beginning, then over a ledge upwards to the first section in grade C/D. Further on this wall (C/D) and over an edge to a steep stepped terrain. From here on towards the waterfall (C) until you reach a flat gravel place. Here ends the first steep section. From now on stepped, and with steep ascends (B/C) to the right until you reach a bench to rest. Next is an easy passage with grass (B) until you reach a small draw coming from the right. Further on a ledge, going over into a small overhanging rock. (C to C/D). Afterwards up and up, always steep and challenging (C), until the final wall that raises to the right. Here are very few iron tools (C/D) until an edge. Again steep (C/D, then easier) to a belt of mountain pines. Keep left from here and descend around a rock. The end of the via ferrata is steel and earthy again.
