In 2014 the via ferrate Lehner Wasserfall was extended with the left variant. The new variant is for experts on the left. . After an easy traverse, the first overhang has to be climbed with the highest level of difficulty (E). This variant is not suitable for children. The original route, which is to the right of the waterfall, is much easier than the new variant, but still requires strength, sure-footedness and alpine experience. At the original exit you can put your strength to the test on the short but difficult overhang. The overhang can be circumvented on the left with a slight variation. 50 meters above the exit, a hiking trail leads to the new rope bridge, so everyone can enjoy the new highlight.

 

Trail length and time required

220 meters altitude gain and 430 m rope length. 1.5 - 2 hours right exit and 2.5 - 3 hours left exit, with descent 3 - 3.5 hours.
