Hanselsteig-Leitersteig, Hohe Wand

Going up a secured climbing route on the "Hohe Wand" on a very beautiful Sunday in the middle of autumn.

sunny 21 °C

Sunday, 21st of October, was a very sunny autumn day again, so we wanted to make use of the still good weather and go outdoor again.

However, on this day we wanted to go more than just a hiking path, so we selected a route which also has some climbing parts to make going up more interesting and also more challenging.

This is why we chose to do a route in eastern Austria, which includes some iron ropes, artificial steps and a long steep ladder.

The beginning of the climbing route.

Soon we reached a nice resting point to stop for some food and drink.

This route is very popular so many other people were visiting there on that Sunday.

The route is clogged up with slower people ahead, so we have to wait.

At the long ladder. It's really very steep!

After that ladder we soon reached the top and could enjoy the view up there.

One of some restaurants, which not only have delicious food, but also nice views and beautiful surroundings.

This day saw some lovely autumn weather and we passed by many colourful trees.

When going down we had to do some more climbing again.

It's a bit scary but also lots of fun.

Finally on safe ground again. :)

Before driving back home to Linz, we decided to go to the eastern-most province of Austria, the "Burgenland", to have dinner there.

We had mixed barbecue with lots of french fries.

As the east of Austria is famous for its wine, we were drinking some more "Sturm" (fresh, sweet wine) again.

Cheers!
