Saturday, 17 July 2021: Rax CANCELLED (Bad weather)

Corona: Please follow the recommendations of the alpine associations of Austria, English translation on ACV (Alpine Club Vienna)

Hike Leader: Class: 5-6

Description: The Wachthüttlkamm is an easy Klettersteig(A) with lots of stairs and ladders, though very long with a height difference of more than 1000m. There are ropes for security, you should be sure footed and have a head for heights. The views to Großes Höllental are stunning!
As it is on the north face of the Rax, it should not be too hot even in mid summer.
On the Rax plateau we can do a bit more hiking dependig on weather and group.
To save our knees we will go down by cable car. Please register in time because I have to make reservation for the cable car!
