After the ascent to the Saukaralm, the path leads to the entrance of the via ferrata Bella Cascinaia (= beautiful dairymaid).
The Bella Cascinaia is a short, but scenically very beautiful and demanding sport climbing route and leads to the Saukarkopf, the local mountain of Großarl.
The west wall rises steeply above the lush alpine meadows and leads to the summit in a beautiful and relaxing climb.
From here you have a wonderful view of the Hochkönig, the Dachstein and the summits of the Ankogel group.
The climbing facility in beautiful rock is well insured and a small rope bridge offers an airy challenge. The descent takes place via the marked hiking trail to the Saukaralm.
Here or on the Gerstreitalm you can take a rest and recover from the strains of the ascent.
