The first lowland via ferrata in Valais, this 330-metre, one-kilometre route is particularly demanding. It features a gradual increase in difficulty and is hence accessible to a wide range of climbers: the first, fun section is rated K3-K4/C, while the second, more aerial and physically demanding section is rated K4/C. A third section rated extremely difficult (K5/D) requires advanced physical skills to overcome the overhangs and slopes composing the route.
