Wirtskante route

Wirtskante route

Description

The “Wirtskante” (literally “inn edge”) is a well-secured Alpine sports climbing tour located on the largely very good rock of the Wilder Kaiser, featuring challenges that often have to be surmounted between the bolts. The bolts themselves are sponsored by the hosts at the Gaudeamushütte mountain inn, Anni and Martin Leichtfried, which is what gave the tour its name.
