Route description

From St. Antönien Rüti to the start

Those who have traveled by bus have a longer walk along the road from St. Antonien Rüti (1460 m). The hairpin bends of the asphalt road up to Partnun (1763 m) can be shortened by taking a more direct marked trail. Above the houses, cross the bridge (1802 m) over the Partnunbach (stream): a blue sign points to the via ferrata. Climb up through alpine meadows, take the right hand fork / head straight uphill (a left turn leads to the Carschina hut). Later, a P. 2124 make a left moving onto increasingly steep terrain which leads up to the start of the ferrata (2360 m).
