Kanzelwand 2058m (
Walsersteig), Austria 27/6 2018

YouTube clip

Today is resting day, since we have walked quite a bit in the last two days. Anyway, I take the cableway Kanzelwandbahn from Riezlem. This isn't physically demanding. The top station is at 1940m.

And Kanzelwand, in the middle of this picture, reaches 2058m. The normal route contains a lot of stairs and is quite easy. But this is what I came here for! The "Walsersteig" leading to the summit.

Now I can use my climbing equipment, nice! The Walsersteig is't very difficult (level C). Difference in altitude is less than 100m.

Approaching the wire bridge, really nice! After a longer passage where I have to hang backwards in the wire, my arms get pretty tired. After that it,s a vertical climb to the top.

I'm soon at the summit. Didn't take the time, but it should have been around
Some view from the summit.
