This via ferrata has been done on 1st July 2018, based on the directions of Bergsteigen.
This has been my first experience with a via ferrata. Having already done some bouldering in the past months, we decided to go for a medium ferrata (C level for the German scale) in the Allgäuer Alps.
To reach the start of the ferrata, there were two possibilities. The first was to take the cable car up to the Iselerberg, the second was instead to walk all the way up (about 1h).
Feeling fit enough we decided to walk. Once we reached the upper station of the cable car, we followed the directions for the Salewa Klettersteig. We stopped to suit up and, finally, we began the ferrata.
The ferrata is not particularly difficult (we even saw a family with children doing it, I wouldn’t suggest it though), being mostly on rock surface. There are just a few passages where one has really to pull himself up with all the strength. The ferrata is divided into two main fractions. The first up to the Iseler peak is the most difficult, with some “C” passages.
The second part begins climbing down from the peak with a funny passage, and then continues easily till reaching the end at the Kühgund peak. From there, we followed back the trail towards the upper Iselerberg cable car station, turning right few hundred metres before in direction of the valley.
Back down, we made our traditional visit to the local hut, enjoying a refreshing Radler, before coming back to Munich.
Hope you enjoyed the post! See you soon!
