The four different ascents make every via ferrata fan's heart leap for joy. The via ferrata "Erlebnissteig" is suitable for children from 10 years and is the ideal preparation for the other three via ferratas. At the top, the family is rewarded with a view towards Tyrol's highest glacier.

 

Erlebnissteig: 
The variant "Erlebnissteig" is suitable for newcomers and for those new to via ferratas in general. With the maximum difficulty level of B+ ("Bilanzierstation" ca. C), this via ferrata is ideally suitable for children and makes hungry for more thanks to its natural type of construction. (220m length)

 

Murmeltiersteig: The "Murmeltier"-variant becomes progressively more challenging and rewards you with climbing over granite. Where necessary, footholds are provided. However, you still get a lot of direct contact with the rock. This route is perfectly suitable for children from 10 years (perhaps with additional securing). Maximum level of difficulty is C on a scale from A to E. (330m length)

 

Gamssteig: The "Gamssteig"-variant rounds off the set of possibilities within the climbing park of the "Pitztaler Gletscher". With a maximum difficulty level of D-, in between the "Steinbock" and the "Murmeltier"-variant, it serves as an ideal preparation for the expert route, which is easily accessible via the "Bilanzierstation". (350m length)

 

Steinbocksteig: The right "Steinbock"-route is the one for experts. The greyish and reddish rock plates are all natural without any footholds. Its modernly built fun route is perfectly integrated in splendid rock formations and mostly goes up vertically in elegant zigzag ways. The maximum level of difficulty is D+ on a scale from A to E. (300m length)

The via ferrata is reachable within 10 mintues from a parking place near the valley entrance of the Pitztal. The easy variant leads towards the right after the access and is the ideal preparation for the more difficult route on the left side.

You climb up the stone wall in three sections. Hence, it is possible to either do a round tour in the wall or walk down comfortably to the valley.

The beginning is promising. Over an edge with a view to the valley, you climb up and later you reach the junction via a traverse.

The second part is very demanding. Within the difficulty level of C and D+, the route utilises the natural formations, levels and plates of the partly outwards expanding rock.

For families, the rope stretches toward the west over a ramp. Both variants rejoin at the exit. Hence, different variations are possible and the easier part can be used as a descent to make a round trip.

Descent

Various trials lead comfortably down to the valley. For the shortest distance back to the parking space, walk from the transmitter a small section on the wide path downwards and then turn right to Arzl.
