The via ferrata begins with a slightly ascending and descending crossing. Easy walking terrain leads to an iron ladder with a height of 10m underneath the rock. Afterwards you cross left to a little crack, which is secured with braces. Now you keep hiking up through the forest until you get to a fork in the path. Turn left to get to the summit cross of the "Häringer Pölven" (1477m) with breathtaking views into the Inn valley. If you go right you will reach the "Mittagskogel" (1595m) within half an hour.

- By car:
From Wörgl via B178 or from Kufstein via B173 and B178 to Söll. From the centre of the village you follow the road to Reith.
Take the Bus from Wörgl or Kufstein to Söll or Bad Häring (village)
- From Reith you follow the signs of the Pölven circuit to "Lengauer chapel". Slightly ascending you follow the path to Lengau (farm on the saddle). Further you follow the slightly descending asphalt road until a steep path branches off to your right. Through the forest you follow the signs (yellow-black) until you get to the start of the via ferrata.
The approach to the via ferrata is also possible from Bad Häring (1,5 hours until you reach the access)
- Same as the ascent, but you can also do a round trip across the Pölven saddle between the Mittagskogel and the small Pölven and further via Reiteralp and the forest road back to Reith.
