The Fürenwand is an impressively steep and high wall. Before the via ferrata was established, only a technically very demanding climbing route led through this wall. Very experienced via ferrata climbers will now have their true joy on this climb.

The Fürenwand via ferrata leads through the towering Fürenwand. It is steep and extremely exposed. The route is spectacular. The protection of the via ferrata is excellent. The Fürenwand is exposed to the southwest. Orientation is easy. The Fürenalp directly above the wall invites you to stop for a break. With the Fürenalpbahn you can save yourself the descent. Alternatively, a hiking trail leads down into the valley. An extremely exposed rope ladder is certainly the highlight and at the same time the key point of the climb.
