Less than a week before, I had started climbing the Via Ferrata with Mark and his son Keith, but early on the route it started to drizzle, and when the rocks got too wet we retreated.
Today I was back by myself, for a second attempt. I hiked from the Kreuzboden cable car station to the start of the Via Ferrata and then climbed quickly, for although it was still dry, clouds were building up, and I wanted to be on the summit before it would start to rain.
In the end, it didn't start to drizzle until shortly after 3 o'clock, and by then I was already back down in the valley.
The bridge hasn't been repaired yet...
Bridge has been destroyed by rockfall and some of the fixed gear has come away...great day out with Katy and Ian including a rapid decent from the summit in a thunderstorm...
Very recommended ferrata. Well equipped, with the interesting option to finish it the hard way or just take the easiest way to the summit. We did the tyrolean bridge, the net and the climbing.
fun times after Wiessmies.
i agree proper gear is the smart way to go. I was not properly equipt.
