The via ferrata is well signposted and also very well secured. It takes about 2 hours to climb the via ferrata. The via ferrata has no emergency exit and has some exposed passages. The difficulty level is C with a few D passages or level 3 (of 6). The descent is via the marked normal route back to the Landsberger Hütte. There you can also rent some via ferrata sets.

Enjoy this indescribably beautiful 3-lake view from the Lachenspitze...

From the Vilsalpsee to the upper Traualpe, past the Traualpsee to the Landsberger Hütte. Exactly in the "beer garden" in front of the entrance door a path branches off down to the Lache. Follow it into the depression with the Lache below the north face and then turn right. Follow the traces of the wall. From there, in a few steps to the rock face and right to the entrance.

Besides the via ferrata there is a "practice via ferrata" with all difficulties. Here you can test all difficulties.

Safety guidelines:
It should be noted that mountaineering may involve an increased risk of accidents and injuries. Despite careful route planning, a basic risk always remains. Tour preparation through endurance sports, appropriate technical training and further education as well as personal prudence reduces the risk of accidents and injuries. But please never forget that the weather in the mountains can change very quickly. Stay on the marked hiking trails.

Personal mountaineering equipment must be safe and serviceable and must meet the relevant technical standards. Every hiker is recommended to obtain information about the planned tours from alpine technical literature or on site. Complete via ferrata equipment (via ferrata set, harness and helmet) is strongly recommended even for experienced hikers!
