This is the most difficult "Stiege" in the Elbe Sandstone Range. It is only for the experienced ones. If you can't manage the beginning please don't do it.
Important are good weather conditions without any rain. Best months are March to October. If it was rainy the day before it is better to start at midday. At that time of day the sun will dry the sandstone.
This via ferrata is a combination of two different "Stiegen".
Important for this via ferrata are good weather conditions without snow, ice and rain.
Best months are March until October. Check the weather forecast first! We had to abandon the climbing although we checked it. I recommend to do this only without any chance of rain. I had to climb backwards with heavy rainfall. More crowded in summer, spring and fall less people.
The Kirnitzschtal is very popular and more crowded on weekends and during bank holidays. To get a parking place it is better to arrive early. You always need to pay a parking fee of three or four € (ticket machine).
