Rote Säule (Tauern) Wikipedia
The Rote Säule is a peak in the extreme north of the district of Lienz. It is located on the main chain of the Tauern between the Roter Kogel (2,946 m (AA)) to the southeast and the Abretter (2,979 m (AA)) to the northwest, the Rote Säule being separated from the Abretter by the col of Abretterscharte (2,856 m (AA)). The Rote Säule has a wide north and east face. To the south are the remains of a glacier, the Gschlößkees. The Rote Säule may be climbed from the Venedigerhaus, the route branching off from the Sandebentörl path towards the northwest.Willi End, Hubert Peterka: Alpine Club guide Venedigergruppe.
