The Rote Säule (also Rote Saile) is a mountain, 2,993 m (AA), on the main chain of the Alps in the Venediger Group. It lies on the border between the Austrian states of Salzburg and East Tyrol.


Location and ascent

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.
