Difficulty levels for hiking and climbing tours in the mountains
|A = easy||The hiking paths are well-marked, usually sufficiently wide and normally not too steep. Mountain experience is not required and the routes are also not dangerous in wet weather.|
|B = moderate||The mountain paths are generally sufficiently marked, sometimes narrow and occasionally secured with rope. Therefore taking part on these tours requires participants to be sure-footed and physically fit. Due to the occasional steep drop, participants should also not suffer from vertigo. Mountain experience and appropriate equipment (e.g. decent shoes) are necessary.|
|C = hard||The paths and climbs are demanding and tough and not always marked. Participants must be experienced hikers and mountaineers - sure-footed, physically fit, vertigo-free and able to deal with mountain terrain without marked paths. Hands may have to be used to negotiate steep routes (rock climbing I but also II).|
Tough boots with a grip sole, waterproof clothing, a rucksack with a jumper, a raincoat, rations and a water bottle. We recommend you bring bandages and hiking or ski poles.
The times given are sufficient but are purely walking time and do not include rests. As a rule of thumb, you can estimate 400 vertical meters per hour for the ascent and 600 vertical meters per hour for the descent.
