Climbing is less of a sport – climbing is a passion. “And when you feel nature around you, then mountaineering makes you happy”, says Tyrolean extreme climber Hans Kammerlander. It is not just established mountain enthusiasts who climb the mountains which are designated as dangerous – that is, the ones which proceed vertically up the rock faces to the summit. More and more young people are indulging in this sport and this is welcomed in East Tyrol in particular. This trend is being accommodated too - in the guise of new climbing crags and climbing routes. The prerequisites too are ideal. In the Hohe Tauern National Park, the Lienz Dolomites and also in Defreggental and Hochpustertal there are hundreds of climbing routes waiting to be conquered by you.
The bright blue sky above you, the warm rocks of the Dolomites beneath your feet and a view to way above the Hohe Tauern – some well-deserved relaxation after a few hundred metres ascent on the via ferrata to one of the summits in the Lienz Dolomites. A different climbing hotspot in East Tyrol is located in the Hohe Tauern. Proceed from Kals vertically from the via ferrata to the Blauspitze (2575 metres); easily accessible from the Kals Bergbahnen mountain station. It takes around three hours to get right to the top. Numerous trained mountain guides accompany mountaineers safely up to the summit. Even children get to climb on rock faces and on rocky sections which are appropriate to their needs. These sessions can be booked with the local mountain guide offices.
