Magnificent highlights on granite.
A Climber’s Paradise: The Ötztal in Tirol.
The Ötztal is almost 70 kilometers long and towered by over 250 three-thousanders. For traditional alpinists and summiteers, these are already countless highlights to be conquered.
Sport climbers appreciate highs of a different kind. The way up is the destination: Mastering difficulties on the rock, overcoming limits, conquering demanding routes and surpassing oneself. Again and again.
The climbing scene has declared the Ötztal the perfect area and a granite hotspot for sport climbers on all levels. With good reason. The facts and figures speak for themselves: 20 climbing crags offer 750 official single-pitch routes with a wide range of routes graded from 5 to 7 and just as many routes between 8 and 11. 58 demanding multi-pitch routes and eight via ferratas – from easy to extremely hard – fascinate more and more climbers from all over the world. In the midst of original alpine nature, both fun and performance increase. And if the weather does not play along, four indoor climbinggyms are available for beginners as well as pros.
