We went to Austria (and Italy) for a week of climbing, hiking and Via Feratta-ing (is that a word?).

We started with a nice 0600hrs flight from LHR to INN. We had a transfer that we missed as our flight was delayed and (despite Austrian Airlines advertising this connection) “25 minutes is too short to transfer”. Once we landed, Sam’s friend picked us up and we went for a BBQ at a Cottage in the mountains.

The next day, we headed up to Nordkette for the Innsbrucker Klettersteig, a fixed rope Via Feratta. We arrived via the Nordkettenbahn which was around £27 return.

The route was phenomenal, and the GPX File can be found here. It took us around 6 hours to complete, with breaks.
