Via Ferrata - fixed rope route

The VAUDE via ferrata on the Gargellner Köpfe offers everything that via ferrata hikers could wish for: excitement, a coherent layout of the ropes, breath-taking views, with easy reach and many mountain adventures!

VAUDE via ferrata on the Gargellner Köpfe

The mountaineering experience in Montafon. You travel in comfort with the cable car from Gargellen (1’423 m) in about 8 minutes to the mountain station and to the mountain restaurant Schafberg Hüsli. Follow the signs from the starting point of the tour towards St. Antönier Joch until the mountain station of the Kristallbahn. A path on the left leads to a notch, a gentle right into the coombe and further along a gravel trail to the entrance. After the entrance, you go over a diagonally running ridge (B), a small ledge and a steep escarpment (C) and a gentler wall section (B) to a mountain ledge. Here the paths split at the signpost.

Via ferrata Rongg waterfall

Great gorge via ferrata with a number of steep sections and a gently overhanging passage. From the village centre below the church follow the signposts towards Rongg alp and Rongg waterfall. After the bridge over the Ronggbach, the via ferrata begins with a very steep and breezy rock face (B/C). Afterwards, you reach the two-rope bridge and cross the stream with it. The steep road goes just over the stream further in to a small basin beside the waterfall.
