Hiking Highlight (Segment)
The Eibgrat is a long-drawn rock ridge in the Franconian Switzerland, over which a gentle via ferrata leads in constant ups and downs. The rock ridge has a length of about 1.5 kilometers and should only be tackled by vertiginous hikers. When it rains you should rather walk on a narrow path around the rocks, because they can become very slippery due to their strong moss growth. However, if you have some experience in the rock and climbing skills, the crossing of the Eibgrates will be an exciting and varied tour.(Source: bergwelten.com/t/w/29822)

The Eibgrat is divided into 5 zones (sections). There is always a sign indicating which zone you are in. If something happens, you can tell the mountain rescue team the zone. But that shouldn't put you off now. The rock ridge is great and easy to master with our 6 year old daughter

The scramble 🧗♀️ over the Eibgrat is a great experience, but not without it, because the rock ridge is almost consistently categorized as T3. Briefly explained: medium-difficulty mountain trails (red, T3) are predominantly narrow, often steep and can have passages that are dangerous to fall. ❗️ Difficult passages can mostly be bypassed, however, surefootedness and sturdy footwear are compulsory in addition to a healthy level of "head for heights". The "tightrope walk" is a lot of fun and the demanding 1.4 km are more or less a "full body workout".

Beautiful rock climbing over the entire Eibgrat. The suitable passages are well marked. You should be sure-footed and not have an excessive fear of heights. Some passages are a bit narrow, so not for stout people. When it's wet it can be slippery and dangerous.

An adventure for us non-climbers, but even and especially our kids show in the tricky places enough flair and reason. With ankle-high hiking boots is also on the rock in dry weather, no problem, only in the rain or snow, it can be quite slippery and I would refrain from this dream round.
