Route description

The eventful Ifinger summit hike starts at the mountain station of the Merano 2000 cable car. From here, the route continues on foot up to Waidmannalm alpine pasture, past the little church of St. Oswald to the Oswaldscharte and onwards to the Kuhleiten inn. The trail then heads in a westerly direction over the mountain ridge and along a challenging but secure fixed rope route up to the summit of the Ifinger. The descent is via the same route as the ascent.
