The highest peak of the Geisler
Short via ferrata sections, which are reached by a long approach, give the undertaking a serious character in connection with not really reliable rock.

From the top station of the Seceda cable car (2453 m), on the south side of the Fermeda towers, descend in about half an hour to the rock-strewn meadow bottoms of "Pian Ciantièr (2265 m). Here, leave the actual path and turn left towards a gravel gully coming down from the Mittagsscharte. Go up this gully to a fork in the path and turn right to the first wire ropes. After these ropes, ascend via a steep path on the southern slope until, higher up in the rock, wire ropes again mark the way ahead. After reaching a pre-peak over the exposed ridge, partly again with the help of wire ropes to the highest point. . As the east ridge also has a via ferrata, this offers the possibility of crossing the summit. However, the difficulties on the east ridge are higher than the described ascent via the south-west flank.
