A mountain stream via ferrata, which is peppered with spectacular spots and in part even runs underground, just above the torrent.
The Höllenrachen (“hell’s throat”) via ferrata was completely rebuilt following the collapse of the famous and notorious “Hexenkessel” or “cauldron” (previously an underground crossing, E). The new route runs along the south-eastern side of the brook, crossing it at the end on a rope bridge. The builders reduced the difficulty level to B/C, opening this via ferrata up to a much wider audience. You climb upstream for much longer (approx. 130 metres of climbing) and often come really close to the roaring floods of the travelling glacial brook. A fantastic, impressive via ferrata by a brook, which you can also combine with a lovely hike.

Times / height differences:
Approach: 15 - 20 min.
Via ferrata: 20 min.
Descent: 15 - 30 min.
Starting point: Franz Senn Hut, 2147 m

Precise route description:
See topo: Cross the brook (A), then you always traverse along the brook (A/B and briefly B) until you reach the first, short rope bridge. Afterwards, head around a corner (B) to easy terrain (A/B). Continue uphill, around a smooth corner (B/C) to a sloping ramp (B). Then easier again to the large rope bridge (A/B). Over the bridge and briefly left (A/B) to the steep ledge, on which you go up (B/C; steps also on the right side of the ledge) to easier terrain. Traverse (A) right at the end of the steel cable.

Pay attention to the water level!  If the water level reaches the steps, turn back immediately or use one of the exits!
