On the rock. The training- and family via ferrata “KNOTT” is located on the rock outcrop upon which a skywalk is anchored. There is a magnificent view onto the individual routes and the climbers from the observation deck.
There are a total of four via ferrata routes on the rock called the “KNOTT”; one short connector route, a 20 m long suspended bridge and two steep ladders. Here, it is possible to climb and train for as long as anyone desires. There are simple routes, difficult passages, exposed tracks and technical sections. It is accessible any and every time of day, because the access and the descent are short.
The route “Sally” (B–B/C–D) commences right at the foot of the wall, at the lowest point. 50 m of steel cable lead up over two overhangs and to the “big foot bridge”. The approx. 4 m high saucer overhang (Untertassen-Überhang) is the most difficult (D).
The routes known as “Turtle”, “Affele” (little monkey) and “Rocky” can be reached by crossing the “big foot bridge”. “Turtle” is the easiest route (B). 40 m of steel cable lead to the exit. All the difficult sections have been equipped with metal steps to facilitate navigation of this route.
