Rote Wand

Featured photo of Rote Wand

The Rote Wand (Red Wall) is a very significant single standing mountain in the Lechquellengebirge (Vorarlberg/Austria). Its large south wall has many climbing routes of higher degrees of difficulty. The normal route to the summit is an easy scramble on a marked path. You are rewarded by a magnificent view from the summit. Have a look on the picture from the nearby summit of Formaletsch (2292 m).
