Nina Schlesener climbs the via ferrata on the Watzmann with confidence. She is just 14 years old. Friends collected her early in the morning for her first tour of the Watzmann. She feels a bit queasy as she surveys the rock face that plunges one thousand metres into the depths below. But once she reaches the end of the via ferrata she is proud that she’s done it and overwhelmed by the impressive panorama of the Berchtesgaden Alps that lies before her from the Watzmann.
