  • Perfect for climbing enthusiasts … NOTE: You climb exclusively at your own risk and are responsible for your own safety.
  • SCHUASTAGANGL (3 hours, 180 m altitude gain, difficulty C) A classic on Steinplatte, where you will be rewarded with beautiful panoramic views. You can get to the start of the via ferrata either by way of the Gamssteig or from the Grünwaldalm and Stallenalm. Access is via the marked path at the foot of the rock face. This route has some tight passages and some airier sections, but is medium difficulty level C, so it is suitable for beginners and families. The additional variant “Knieschladerer” is a little more airy and you can get back to the normal climb via a rope bridge. The route leads to the top of the Steinplatte.
  • WIESLOCHSTEIG (3 ½ hours, 530 m altitude gain, difficulty B) To get to the starting point you have to take the path past the Stallenalm and Grünwaldalm along the lower path to the intersection “Kopfkrax”. Here the trail branches off to the left and past beautiful viewpoints you have the possibility to choose between an easier and a more difficult trail, both of which lead to the top of Steinplatte.
  • GAMSSTEIG (2 hours, 100 m altitude gain, difficulty C) This trail leads directly from the Triassic Beach steeply downhill, and is mostly used as an approach path for the Schuastagangl climb. If you want to make a round trip, you can hike past the Stallenalm and Grünwaldalm along the rock face and come back around to Steinplatte. You can find more information about
