Modern sport via ferrata with Nepalese and wire rope bridges, as well as dizzying low views.

The modern but relatively short via ferrata winds its way high above the Lauterbrunnen Valley along numerous rocky slopes of the Mürrenflue from the car-free climatic health resort of Mürren to the neighbouring village of Gimmelwald. The climb is not very demanding from a climbing point of view, runs mostly in the forest, but offers some spectacular highlights that are second to none. Deep waterfalls are crossed on several swaying wire rope bridges, and an 80-metre-long Nepalese bridge forms the grand finale shortly before the exit in Gimmelwald. However, the highlight of the climb and a true test of courage for every ferratista is undoubtedly an extremely exposed wall passage - with almost 600 m of air under the feet - from which even base jumpers courageously plunge into the depths. This varied tour is crowned by a magnificent view of the mighty north face of the Eiger.

Bridges are great, but everything else in the Ferrata is not memorable. The fact that for most of it you're going down doesn't help as well...
