Via Ferrata Tälli

We take the small cable car up to the Tällihütte. A short hike takes us to the start of the via ferrata, where we get into our harnesses and clip onto the steel safety cable. Here we go! We climb over ladders and rock steps. Some exposed traverses are waiting for us. At the end, a few more ladders lead us on the ridge of the Gadmerflue. A perfect place for a spot of lunch. We can enjoy the view but don't forget about the descent. We descend towards Gental via a small hiking trail, and later climb a few metres up to the Sätteli. Another steep descent brings us back to the Tällibahn. With this we glide effortlessly into the valley.

Day 1

After meeting at the Tällibahn cablecar station, we're carried comfortably up to the Tällihütte. A short hike brings us to the start of the via ferrata where we equip ourselves with a climbing harness, via ferrata set and helmet and start our adventure. Straight away a steep ladder provides a challenging passage. The 'iron way' continues along grassy ledges and steep rock steps, some of which are very exposed. Towards the top things start to ease off, so that it is possible to start enjoying the view. Near the summit some final steep ladders lead out onto the ridge of the Gadmerflue. Time to eat and drink something! Soon we are descending the north side of Gadmerflue on footpaths in the direction of Gental. A short re-ascent takes us up and over Sätteli, where we turn back to the south side. Finally a short steep descent leads back down to Tällibahn, which will reward us with an effortless final journey.
