Wildental – Klettersteig
Exciting passages with fantastic views.
The Wildental-Kletterstieg set up in 1993 runs through the shaded north flank of the Persailhorn mountain. It combines exciting passages with fantastic views.

Note on anchors: steel rope, three ladders, iron clasps
- Equipment: full via ferrata equipment
- Differential elevation: 748 m
Getting there, Ascent and Descent
- Getting there / Directions: Take the B 164 or B 311 to Saalfelden. Turn onto the B311 north of Saalfelden in the hamlet of Pabing towards Bachwinkl and drive through the settlement area to the parking lot in the forest.
- Approach to the wall: From the parking lot, ascend along the red marked path to the Peter Wiechenthaler-Hütte. Continue on Route 428 to where a trail to the Wildental-Klettersteig forks to the left . Take this trail to the start off point.
- Starting elevation: 1,950 m
- Descent: Over the Südwand-Klettersteig or the red marked normal path "Alter Weg" (unpleasant craggy terrain and rubble) back to the ascent trail.
Map description (see info sheet)
- Take the dirt and in places flattened Schrofenrücken (max. B) up to a little saddle (Trail path, intersection with Normalweg)
- There, keeping to the left move to the north side and descend briefly.
- It follows the abandoned and in places high-adrenaline “Wastlpromenade“ pass under steep cliffs.
- Over a short steep section (B/C), it continues on to a steep, partly level ridge (max B). This tapers to a exposed crest (A/B).
- The ensuing " Jagadiener-Wandl " is the next interesting point: a steep, covered level ramp with three staggered ladders (B).
- Continue through a gully (A/B) and a short oblique chimney (B/C). The subsequent ramp (A) leads to the exit.
