The via ferrata to the Graustock (2661 m) allows direct ascent of the mountain over an exposed ridge with breathtaking deep views of its north face and Engelberg.
Distance 5 km
The via ferrata on the Graustock (2661 m) offers us a mix of mountain path and the overcoming of the partly steep and exposed rocky upturns. Breathtaking views into the 700 m high north face of the Graustock and into the Engelberg valley await us. From the summit we enjoy a magnificent panorama over the peaks Titlis, Spannort, Rigi, Mittelland and Pilatus and the Bernese peaks "Wetterhörner, Schreckhorn and Finsteraarhorn". In early summer, large snow cornices can still protrude over the ridge, also snow bridges over the karst areas can collapse when stepped on. So caution is advised in these places! Orientation is easy in good visibility, but in poor visibility the descent can be a challenge. The ridge is exposed on the southeast side. Pay special attention to the weather forecast, as the entire tour is very exposed and offers no exit possibility.
