Long, adventurous via ferrata in the wild, original surroundings of the Baltschieder valley.

The most beautiful, but also most demanding ascent to the Wiwannihütte is via the Baltschieder Klettersteig. A varied and scenically unique tour, where easy terrain alternates with more challenging sections. The via ferrata is one of the highlights in the southern Bietschhorn massif. Past the historic Niwärch water pipeline from 1370 - which still supplies the nearby villages with water - the trail winds through blossoming mountain landscapes and lush meadows to the start of the almost 700-metre-long via ferrata.This is quite demanding, with some racy passages in the lower area and a striking rock tower that needs to be climbed. At the end of the trail, you can take a rest at the rustic Wiwannihütte (2470 m), which lies directly below the summit of the Roti Chüe (2471 m). The magnificent views of the Stockhorn, Wiwannihorn and the almost 4000 m high Bietschhorn are the additional icing on the cake of a perfect via ferrata day tour in the Valais.
