Via ferrata Heini Holzer at the Mount Ifinger
The dramatic via ferrata Heini Holzer was realised in May 2016 thanks to the cooperation between the Tourist Association and the Alpenverein (Alpine Club) Schenna. A spectacular climb in breathtaking scenery, which is the simplified counterpart to the extremely difficult “Hoachwool” via ferrata at the Schnalstal valley entrance.
The 500 m long climb is perfectly secured with 1000 m of steel cable, is rated at medium difficulty and is therefore suitable for less expert alpinists and families with enthusiastic young climbers as well. Many difficult steeps have been made easier with steel clamps. Nevertheless, the last part of the via ferrata, the so-called “Angel’s edge”, presents a very impressive rock passage.
