Eggersteig 2

Kaisergebirge, Austria

The Eggersteig takes an improbable route up between two immense vertical limestone faces of the Wilder Kaiser. Though this route involves narrow ledges, climbing ladders and cables, and massive exposure, it’s actually possible to do it without a klettersteig (aka, via ferrata) kit. I have been on numerous via ferrata routes in the famous Dolomites of Italy, and I can say that the Wilder Kaiser peaks are definitely on par! Photo © copyright by Jack Brauer.
