The Laserzwand mountain with the two peaks near Tristach in East Tyrol is well-known for its via ferrata.
The Laserzwand near Tristach consists of two peaks: the 2,614 m high Schöttnerspitze, the main summit with a wooden summit cross and summit register plus the Kleine Laserzwand (2,568 m asl.). The latter is a famous climbing summit in the Lienz Dolomites.
The beneath located Karlsbader Hütte mountain hut was built between 1887 and 1888, immediately afterwards the construction of the via ferrata was suggested. The alpine tour today proceeds from the hut towards north and across the southern flank of the Laserzwand.
Along the Rudl Eller Path, the well-known Laserz Via Ferrata (difficulty D) is accessible. It proceeds through the 400 m high western slope of the Kleine Laserzwand. On the top, an unforgettable panoramic view across the gigantic mountains of the main Alpine ridge can be enjoyed.
