The via ferrata on the Rigidalstock (2593 m) above Engelberg/Titilis leads to a panoramic summit and has some original via ferrata passages to offer.
High above Engelberg, the via ferratas lead to the Rigidalstock, which has become a popular summit destination since the routes were established. The via ferratas offer some original passages. The views of the surrounding high mountains are stunning. The climb can be wonderfully combined with the Brunnistöckli via ferrata or the Zittergrat via ferrata on the Brunnistöckli. The orientation of the via ferrata is mainly south-facing and west-facing. They are excellently secured. The approach is easy to find in good visibility, but in bad visibility orientation can quickly become a challenge. With the Brunnihütte, there is a refreshment stop directly on the trail. The via ferrata offers two variants:
Rigidalstockgrat (east): only this climb, with a difficulty of C (K3), is suitable for the ascent and the descent, as well as for beginners
Rigidalstockwand (west): this climb corresponds to difficulty level D (K4) and should only be climbed by experienced climbers and only in the ascent.
