Via ferrata on Eggishorn by Stephanie
August 01, 2022 · Community
This v.f. was loads of fun. The bridges were challenging and the end, where the v.f. winds around and over rock pillars, was very well designed. Our thanks to the designers for creating such an excellent route. It is very well protected and is not just for kids!
