Follow me up one of the most impressive walls in Austria and spend a day climbing the Dachstein massif! Take an unforgettable trip into the Alps and have a blast on this amazing rock climbing program.

The Dachstein Massif belongs to the Northern Limestone Alps, and is located in central Austria. The daunting rock walls of this incredible mountain range make it a popular tourist destination all year round, offering beauty and excitement for every season.

This makes it a perfect stop for rock climbers of all fitness and ability. The south face of Dachstein rises upwards of 850 meters, and the unbelievable mountain scenery of lakes, meadows, forests, and peaks, will leave every adventurer in awe.

The rock itself is rough and caters to climbers on a wide selection of possible routes. Each route has a varying level of difficulty, and I can guide you on just the right path depending on what your desires and needs are for this excursion.

The programs in the High Dachstein will help you hone your advanced climbing skills, and the Koppenkarstein will have a route for everything in between. I am an expert in the massif, so I will make sure you have a fun and safe experience on just the right path for you.

Certain tours will rise up to 500 meters in altitude, and cover roughly five hours of walking time in a day. Based on your skillset and ambition, we can craft the perfect program for you so you have the time of your life.

Because of the length and duration of some of these climbs, you should be in good physical shape and ready to take on some serious rock for these programs.

Book this Dachstein program now and I will show you not only the most beautiful climbing routes in Austria, but in all of the Alps!

If you wanted a different climbing course in Austria, I can take you for a day to the Grazer Bergland! Or we can take a six-day journey to Alphubel, Dom, and Dufourspitze!
