Icepark East Tyrol

Austria's biggest artifical ice crag let the athlete's heart beat faster.

In additon to numerous other icy waterfalls which are in a favoured altitude and partially sheaded valleys all over East Tyrol, offers this ice crag, opened in January 2016, optimum conditions to all ice climbing fans.

Icepark Osttirol - the perfect location....

The search for the perfect location lasted a full year, and it was found just a 20 minute walk from the far side of Matreier Tauernhaus. When they are prepared, the artificial ice falls, created by fine mist from conduits, provide a frozen wall with some 70 routes in a very compact space. It is the ice assuredness in Eispark Osttirol that makes it stand out from similar projects. It can even be climbed in winters that are not so cold – something that Vittorio Messini and Mathias Wurzer from Kals mountain guides attest.

Ascent: Starting from Matreier Tauernhaus the ascent proceeds to Eispark Osttirol via Innergschlöß forest path, then branches off to the left to Wohlgemutalm. Follow the slope to the right and you will finally reach the entrance of the Gschlößklamm via an extensive gravel area. Tauernbach is crossed here via a small pedestrian bridge and it is then a 20 minute walk to the base of Eispark Osttirol. (Avalanche transceiver recommended) 

Descent: Abseil via the constructed rock sections.
Material: Ice and mixed facilities, 70 metre single rope and 60 metre double rope
