Ich bin dar letzter Monat, aber wir hatten gedankt is zu stark fur ohne Helm kletteren von die steiner beginen. Es gibt einfacher klettersteige in region?

I was there last month, but we had thought it too hard for climbing without a helmet where, from where the rocky part starts. (There is a split in the path there - I followed the 'hard' way a little bit but the others stayed behind. After a bit you really have to start using your hands). So, well, I have had some experience in climbing halls and also some bouldering, and now I think I'd like to try some via ferrata in the area. However I want to start with something that is relatively easy, since it's been a year since my last climbing attempt and klettersteigen are much more dangerous than bouldering or hall climbing. (I guess I could do the Rachenstein many times until I can reach the top, but a klettersteig that I can complete would be nice). So, do you have any suggestions?

dear christos,

as far as the eisenerzer reichenstein is concerned, i could suggest the grete-klinger-steig. difficulies till C (in austria it is indicated von A to E), it's so far relativley easy and very beautiful (but it's not for real beginners!!), a via-ferrata equippment and a helmet is useful. you start at the "hirnalm", after the grete-klinger-steig you can go to eisenenerzer reichenstein and go back to the hirnalm.

further via ferrata (klettersteig): www.bergsteigen.at (austrian alpin webstite)

if you have further questions, please ask...

best greetings

thank you very much - this site seems just what I need. I'll try some A-B klettersteig to get started. Do you usually do the klettersteig with boots or with more precise shoes?

i would suggest normal hiking boots. for klettersteig D,E it's sometimes useful to use climbing shoes, depends on the character
