Spend a short weekend break here and enjoy all the climbing routes, and later hike for at least 2 hours towards Franz Fischer Hut, which is a small and simple mountain hut to spend the night and relax after an intense rock climbing day.
This trip will require basic training and some practice in the rocks, for at least 2 days with professional rock climbers. People usually choose to visit this place between June and September.
