Via Ferrata Varen
Ridge trail
Ridge trail Torrent:


Ring route: Rinderhütte-Vorgipfel Torrenthorn-Schafberg- Rinderhütte From the mountain resort Rinderhütte to the pre-summit, follow the same path as Torrenthorn. From here the path leads south along the ridge to Schafberg.


Although it is not a via ferrata, this part of the tour requires some surefootedness and no fear of heights. The entire ridge was often engaged in the past, but a few years ago it was renovated by the Torrentbahnen. On the whole circuit, you can enjoy a magnificent view of several four thousand meters peaks such as Mont Blanc, Dent-Blanche, Weisshorn, Bishorn, Zinalrothorn, Matterhorn, Monte Rosa, the Mischabel group and many others. From Schafberg, follow the blue trail south on the slope and return to the Rinderhütte.
