Description

In two stages one overcomes in approximately 2 1/2 hours the 1100 height meters. The first step is a short "adventure via ferrata" over the Törleck, which is easy to moderately difficult to master. Then the transition to the Großer Donnerkogel (2005m) is difficult to classify, which one can choose with great adventurous desire over the Donnermandl (difficult to very difficult).

Difficulty

Severe

Steep, sustained and serious terrain on rock/ice. Routes will be long, exposed and possibly committing. D, D+
