Climbing crags in Osttirol

One national park and 266 three-thousand metre peaks - East Tyrol has long enjoyed cult status in mountaineering and climbing circles. Of course the Grossglockner, Austria's highest mountain, the Lienz Dolomites and the Nationalpark Hohe Tauern have contributed to this.

Hardly any other alpine region has so many different types of rock in such a small area: From granite and limestone to gneiss and quartzite. They all harbour their own challenges and make for variety in the climbing technique. This wealth of variants has already got about in the mountaineering scene and elevated climbing in the East Tyrolean rock diversity cult status: Three of the ten East Tyrolean climbing crags have been set up in granite with 60 tours in total, and 500 tours in soft limestone. Here climbers decide not only the level of difficulty, but also the texture.
