Klettersteig Däumling

In addition to the magnificent view of the Carnic and Julian Alps, the "Thumb" offers some passages charged with adrenaline. The highlight is certainly the impressive "Nepal Bridge", which has to be crossed at a dizzying height. It is 40 metres long, swings under the foot of the mountaineers and therefore requires courage and a head for heights. Eventually, it goes down 100 metres to the left and right of the bridge.
