    Anna and Johann, two climbing routes, which are already a great experience. Combined creates a climbing of superlatives. First it goes to the "Anna" with a D-spot, but mostly to C / D. At the exit of the Anna via ferrata (here you can also break off) one meets the approach of the "Johann". The way you follow 100 hm left to the entrance. The "Johann" is significantly heavier, which is immediately apparent on the extremely heavy boarding overhang and also much longer than the "Anna". He leads you up to the Seethaler hut.

    Here you can either descend to the Hunerkogel mountain station (Südwand-Bahn) or, if still not enough, you can still attack the shoulder on the Hohe Dachstein (2995 m). Thus you would have combined the three via ferratas of the so-called "Superferrata". If you connect all three via ferratas, the result is almost 1,200 vertical meters, which you have to climb. Insured throughout with steel cable. But here it is not only the altitude, the condition and skills demand, but especially the difficulties to be overcome up to the degree D / E. And the descent is also over the glacier!

    The via ferrata combination at the Dachstein is one of the longest and heaviest in the Alps, so it is only for advanced skiers - and even these, will know their limits here.

  • Anna via ferrata: steep and exposed. A few places with D. Someone who had problems with this climb should not continue with the Johann via ferrata.
    Johann-Klettersteig: The heaviest point (E) is the same at the entrance, then it goes vertically with C / D on. There is no emergency exit! So hold out!
