Ferrata in NP Gesäusee
This ferrata with high difficulty is most practical to combine with the just climbed Franz Joseph. However, this combination of two ferrates of difficulty D + D / E is really for gourmets and perseverers. Less than half an hour and almost no altitude meters separate you from boarding it. This ferrata is one-way and takes less than an hour, but just the beginning in the form of a descent in D passages is an interesting experience. But the best is yet to come: a cave with a rope bridge, which ends at the foot of the chimney, where the highlight and the most difficult passage of this entire rope path begins. Of course, if the walls are wet, the difficulty will increase and you will have to tighten most of them by hand. But it is a great experience and again to recommend.
After ascent before ascent
after overcoming the Kaiser Franz Joseph ferrata, within 20 minutes we will move along the tourist path No. 822 over a pleasant plateau to the Rossloch ferrate
I don't like to overestimate my strength, but at the same time I sometimes underestimate myself, but those who do not try anything will not get anything, so I dispelled the doubts and we throw ourselves into a „hole“ directly on the head (ie on my feet).
Rossloch - cave
After entering the cave, a short break in the shade will come in handy. The rope bridge is just the beginning of the ascent through the chimney, which can bother a lot when wet. The advantage is the knowledge of cave climbing at odds. We are lucky, the walls are quite dry and sufficient even for short (160 cm) people (using all limbs to the maximum) sufficient.
Rossloch - conclusion
finally we see the light at the end of the tunnel again

Prospects at the end
after successfully conquering both ferratas, we like to use the plateau to rest
You can descend either over the top of the Hochblaser (about 3 hours) or back along the marked path (2 hours). It is an endless, rubble and sometimes very steep path, for me personally more challenging than a ferrata :)
The lake saves
Because it was unbelievably hot all day, I don't hesitate for a moment to jump into the cold lake. Despite the sitting and maybe the worried pensioners from my underwear :)
