Look for the via ferrata via the trail that leads to the Leiterepass. You will get to the base of the cliff and from here you can see the via ferrata scrambling up the wall.
This via ferrata goes up rather steeply and you will discover some sections that are fairly demanding for your arms. But it's doable and the void envelops you. From the top you can see the starting point, imagine the presence of the void!

You can go towards the Leiterpass on the alpine (as it is designated) trail.
