The via ferrata of the Donnerkogel is perhaps the most jaw-dropping climbing experience in the world. Climbers ascend a 43m long sky ladder that stretches above a 700m deep ravine. You have to see it to believe it.
Maybe this inappropriate but…. um… what if you suddenly need to take an emergency bio-break midway up the ladder?
Definitely not an ideal place for that to happen…
“This stairway to heaven is made of steel cables and it is the highlight of a climbing tour of the Donnerkogel, in Austria’s Salzkammergut resort area. The 43-meter long sky high ladder is stretched over an abyss some 700 meters below. Climbers who’ve made it until the via ferrata at the summit of Donnerkogel are rewarded with a sensational view over the Alps.”
