Riederklamm climbing garden
On the newly built practice via ferrata you can acquire or hone your skills for larger and longer routes on various routes with different levels of difficulty.
Gerlos winter sports resort has its own via ferrata park. A gorge has been elaborately made accessible with a metal platform for via ferrata walkers and climbers in the Ried part of town. The tours on the first wall are short, the main via ferrata through the Riederklamm is much longer. In 2020, a new section (C) with an E variant was added after the 70 m rope bridge. From the exit you can even see the one or two 3,000 metre peaks.
