The Exnerturm is a spectacular and free-standing tower; it marks the East end of the Western cluster of Sella Group formations near Wolkenstein. There are 2 well known routes on the North face, and a Klettersteig (via Ferrata)traverses the South wall.

Getting There 

Driving East from the road intersection of Groednerpass and Sellapass highways, one comes to a well-marked parking area provided by the Club Alpino Italiano (CAI) for the Pisciadu Klettersteig (Pisciadu via Ferrata). The Klettersteig provides access to the North facing routes.

Climbing Season

The summit of the Exnerturm may be reached by ~60 meters of easy climbing/scrambling from the via Ferrata described in approach to the tower. The descent utilizes the via Ferrata to return to the starting point of the climbs on the North face.
