Climbing or caving? The Gauablick Cave via ferrata offers the ideal 2-in-1 solution. The intermediate via ferrata on the north side of the Sulzfluh has a special highlight: In the middle of the via ferrata, you can immerse yourself in the world of speleologists in the 350 m long Gauablick cave. Don't forget your headlamp! Back in daylight, steeper, bracketed and easier passages lead to the exit.
Exit at 2225 m a.s.l.
exit on the Karrenfeld, 2440 m a.s.l.
