ANTON RENK VIA FERRATA in Fendels: one of the most spectacular – and most difficult – via ferratas in Tyrol with two overhanging passages, one at the start and another close to the top. Modern via ferrata with good steel cable, rock anchors (mostly eyelet anchors), support brackets. Warning: no emergency exit.
GOLDWEG AND TIROLERWEG VIA FERRATAS in Nauders: these two amazing via ferratas are easy to get to on the Bergkastel cable car and are considered challenging day climbs. They require Alpine experience, sure-footedness and fitness – and the descents should also not be underestimated. Both are gneiss classics with ridge sections and stunning views, one to Lake Reschen the other to the Goldseen Lakes. Warning: no emergency exits.
Equipment: Alpine equipment including provisions for changes in the weather, maps, climbing harness with fixed rope set, climbing helmet, adequate footwear, possibly climbing shoes, fixed rope gloves.
Warning: Do not under any circumstances attempt these climbs if you are unsure of the weather, beware of falling rocks and avoid working stones loose.
