WE 13/14 July 2019: Rax POSTPONED

Hike Leader: Class: 6 / C6

Description: The Rax is the second highest mountain of the Wiener Hausberge with a beautiful plateau and rather steep ascents. We will use the Reißtaler Steig to go up to the peak and smoothly down to the Habsburghaus on the first day. Overnight will be in the nice Habsburghaus. Depending on the weather and strength of the group, we will make a big round on the plateau and go back to Preiner Gscheid or hike to the cable car to go down to Hirschwang on the second day. The Reißtaler Steig is a Klettersteig A/B with a slightly exposed ladder. So please be sure, that you are sure-footed, have a head for hights and good condition.

Route: Preiner Gscheid – Reißtalersteig – Heukuppe – Habsburghaus (overnight) – somehow down…
