Auf dem Klettersteig zum Großen Priel – wandern in Pyhrn-Priel
Pyhrn-Priel planned a hike.
July 23, 2019
You are hanging 900 meters of altitude on the continuous, 2,130 meters long steel cable - there is endurance required. With the establishment of the long and difficult connection between the southeast spur via ferrata and the Bert Rinesch via ferrata a great "complete work" was created, which belongs to the mega climbing routes in Austria. The long Ferrata is a mix of action trail and long alpine via ferrata with summit ridge (difficulty B-D). The steel cable ends right at the mighty red summit cross of the Great Priel, the highest elevation of the Dead Mountains - perfect can not complete a climbing tour.The biggest difficulties are in the lower section. The so-called monkey skull is an overhanging and low-pedaling D passage. At the crossing comes an overhang. The last D-passage is in the second cave, here you have to do a spreading step and climb steeply on the southwest wall. In the upper part of the wall ladders help you to climb. Only at the top of the long south ridge the terrain becomes easier.The path to the entrance to the Stieg takes you past green meadows and the Klinserfall. At the Prielschutzhaus, you can recharge your batteries for the upcoming craze. If you still have questions about the via ferrata, the hosts will help you. For the climb, you should definitely bring enough experience and suitable equipment.
