Dachstein Via Ferrata

Did the Seemond - Klettersteig. No helicopter involved. Takes about 5 hrs on the face and hours walk either end and cable car down. Bloody hard work but magnificent situations.

NB This is not the same as the Johann-Klettersteig. It is about the same grade but 780m long while Johann is about 500m. Starts from the Kessel spring near Hallstalt, and goes to Gjoid Alm.

FWIW If you are going to do this you must leave early - sun will hit you at 2pm ish, and last cable car down is 5pm.

TW (Time wired) 5hrs
