The Rote Saule is a rock formation in the Virgental close to the Sajathut. This mountain is specialy known for the klettersteig/via ferrata that go's up to the summit. This via ferrata has difficulty D-E, but there is also a easyer way that meets the mainroute halfway. The biggest difficulties are three iron ladders going straight up and one hangs over. The higher part of the route is nice rock climbing secured by iron cables.
From the summit you will have a good view to the Gross Venediger and surrounding mountains of the Venediger Range.
There is also a "normal" route to the summit. This route can be used for descent after the via ferrata. This route is at parts secured with iron cables but not difficult and can be used as a easyer way up the Rote Saule.
From the city of Matrei am Osttirol you go into the Virgental. From Pragraten or Bichl you can follow the marked path to the Sajathut.The rote Saule is direct behind the Sajathut.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
