The via ferrata starts in Blatten, 20 minutes drive from Brig on 1436 meters elevation. The climb starts behind the information board shortly after the parking area.
Due to snow and ice in higher elevation, the via ferrata is accessible from June to October only. It's cold in the morning during September and October. It's more pleasant if you start at midday clockwise to enjoy the warmth of the sun while climbing. It's busier here during summer in July and August, but rarely crowded.
Important to Know
Close to the end is a tyrolienne - zip wire traverse. You can circumvent it nowadays or you lend the equipment in an outdoor shop before.
