Via Ferrata Nasenwand Ginzling

Beautiful, though challenging, via ferrata characterised in particular by it's extreme length and exposed position. In the first, relatively easy stage (C/D), it leads steeply upwards over several "walls", an over-hanging intersection, through the "Birkenwald'l Forest", over a steep shingle slope, a high column and the "Floitentritte" (Floiten footholds), until a large ledge which marks the end of this stage. If you decide against taking the exit to the left, you will reach the more challenging second stage. After a relatively easy entry, this leads on to a steep, very strenuous ascent including an over-hang which is the most difficult point in this climb (E), 2 triple wire rope bridges and an extremely exposed crossing. From 2011 onwards, section (E) can be bypassed.
