Alpine sport climbing

Climbing is the trend sport par excellence!

What's alpine climbing?

Sports climbing on rock walls with a height up to 1000m in alpine surroundings. The routes are usually anchored up with good bolts at various distances, but certainly also require additional independent securing with nuts or Friends.

Being able to take personal responsibility in the assessment of one’s own abilities and the securing gear, attention to alpine factors and weather conditions or the length and nature of ascents/descents is a necessary prerequisite.
