Preiner Wand, Austria

7 August 2016

From Kaiserbrunn a steep hike up to the top station of the cable car, then along the Preiner Wand via the Jakobskogel to the Preiner Wand Kreuz, and from there steep down the vertical cliff and all the way down to Prein an der Rax. This hike was longer and more strenuous than anticipated, especially because of the steep downhill, with plenty of chains, footholds, and scree slopes. But it was worth every bit of effort!

Some nice panoramic views (scroll to the right to see it all...).
