Retour ans Tageslicht im Klettersteig Gauablickhöhle

Climbing or cave tour? The via ferrata Gauablickhöhle offers the ideal 2-in-1 solution. The moderately difficult via ferrata on the north side of the Sulzfluh has a special highlight: In the middle of the via ferrata you dive into the world of cave researchers in the 350 m long Gauablickhöhle. Don't forget your headlamp! Back in the daylight it goes with steeper, bracket-rich and easier passages to the exit.
