Description

The Panorama-via ferrata route is a combination of the 'Sepp-Oberlechner-Gedächtnisweg trail' (from Kl. Laserzkopf to Gr. Sandspitze) with the 'Gebirgsjägersteig' and the 'Ari-Schübel-Steig' on the south side of the Gr. and Kl. Sandspitze. To cross the highest located ridge in the Lienz Dolomites, with seven summits of between 2690 m and 2772 m, a good level of fitness, sure-footedness and experience in the mountains is definitely required. Superb views to the mountains in East Tyrol and breath-taking views into the distance from the highest summits in the Lienz Dolomites!


Equipment: complete via ferrata gear and helmet (in spring possibly crampons, ice pick and an additional safety rope).

Special features: Impressive views down to the depths and a few very high climbing sections. There is an emergency exit route at the Böse Schartl. The route may of course also be tackled in reverse.
