Stage 2 - Karnische Alpen 17- 21 June

This is a very long natural ridge line marking the border of Italy and Austria.  It starts off gently along the wooded ridge, before turning rocky and offering some diversions up one or two very fine via ferrata.  It's a natural ridge line that pretty much follows the border all the way and stays high.  Peaks include Oisternig, the Gartnerkofel, Trogkofel, Hohe Warte, Steinwand,before the great ridge line of the Karnische Hohenweg with the Steinkarspitze, Gamskofel and Pfannspitze

A via ferrate goes up this face of the Hohe Warte

175 km, 11,700m ascent, mainly trails, some via ferrata
