    I would also rate the Wildauer Steig as A difficulty climbing route. So for mountain-ridden, sure-footed and vertigo-free hikers, a via ferrata set is not absolutely necessary, but if you are surprised by bad weather "nice to have". I would recommend a helmet here to anyone, since in places there is a lot of loose rock lying around, that is very easy to ride off and the backman will certainly not enjoy it.

    Widauersteig - north side of the Scheffauer (2,111m)
    The Widauersteig is a very beautiful and not too demanding climb on one of the westernmost peaks of the Wilder Kaiser, the Scheffauer. The starting point is the cozy and family-run Kaindlhütte on the romantic Steingbergalm at 1,293 m. The best way to get to the Kaindlhütte from the Wilder Kaiser region is from Lake Hinterstein via the Walleralm in about 1.5 hours. The climb is largely secured with steel ropes and requires absolute surefootedness and a head for heights. From the summit of the Scheffauer there is a fantastic view of the Hintersteiner See, the main Alpine ridge, the Inn Valley and the Bavarian region.

    Surefootedness and, above all, a head for heights are essential!
    Recommendation: HELMET as well as a climbing harness & via ferrata set for inexperienced users.

    Whether demanding or not, everyone will answer for themselves - crossing the north side of the Scheffauer is definitely exhausting and an experience. Next time I would definitely pack climbing gloves ... The steep ropes are a bit frayed and sharp in some places ...
