The new via ferrata is not quite what you might expect, as it also contains various elements that are more often seen in rope courses. This various route is situated below the Bergrestaurant Wildstrubel.
The 800-metre horizontal route runs beneath the Wildstrubel Alpine restaurant and the Gemmi cableway mountain station. Visitors can look forward to lots of hair-raising features such as the 65-metre-long rope bridge and the 20-metre-high ladder that turns through 540°!
The hike up to the Gemmi Pass or back down follows the famous twisting trail that the shepherds take every year with their flocks.
Weather conditions: before setting off to tackle a via ferrata, it is important to check the weather forecast. Bad conditions can make climbing dangerous – particularly in stormy weather.
Rockfalls: because of the risk of falling rocks – usually caused by climbers higher up or by animals – all climbers are strongly advised to wear a helmet.
Safety: always leave sufficient distance between yourself and the climber ahead. There should never be more than one person between two anchor points.
All climbers must wear a harness. Because of the risk of falling rocks along the route, a helmet is also essential. Ensure you have sturdy footwear and appropriate clothing, and bring a small rucksack with water and a snack. A suitable pair of gloves will protect your fingers and knuckles from grazes.
