Routes and practice tips for rock jocks and rookies
All of the via ferratas are secured by means of steel cables and manmade footholds of various kinds. Probably the most scenic of them all, and all of our team at Appartementhaus AURORA as well as partner hotel “DerSALZBURGERHOF” would agree, is the “Hirschinger” climb. It is rare to encounter views as spectacular as these. The climb on the Mauskarspitze is relatively new. A short, intermediate climb with a number of steep passages. A highlight is the 30 meters-long rope bridge located in the middle of the via ferrata. If you would like to practice a bit beforehand, at the mountain lift station on the Kleine Scharte you will find an excellent course where you can work on the basics of safe climbing, as you will an instructional path at the climbing center. The ideal warm-up before setting out on a real via ferrata.
