Description

At the first turnoff after the Granderalm mountain hut, take path 819/824 heading south towards the Schleier Waterfall. After crossing a brief exposed section, you will need to climb down via a rigid ladder around six metres in length. This is followed by a steep descent through the forest until you reach the nature and climbing oasis that is the Schleier Waterfall.
You will be able to enjoy the soothing rushing of the water and also watch some climbers in action on the rock faces if you’re lucky.
Heading from the Schleier Waterfall, walk along the path and subsequently take forest road 818 heading south to the car park in Going, Hüttling.

Requirements: surefootedness and a good head for heights (long ladder)!
