Känzele via Ferrata

Johannes, Daniele, Katerina and I snuck off to Bregenz after work to try out the new Känzele via Ferrata that was opened in August 2016 by the Austrian Alpine Club (Alpenverein Vorarlberg). The route is mostly graded C/D with an option to take an easier B/C section in the middle. Of course if you opt for this route you still have the C/D at the top. It’s all new (2016) so the safety ropes, steps etc. are in top condition. The climb only takes about 20 minutes so it’s perfect for after work if you live somewhere nearby.
