Description

The wild and picturesque Austrian Alps await you on this 8-day mountaineering course, which will see you perched upon the summit of  Wildspitze by the end of the week!

Our adventure begins with a bit of learning as we get you up to speed on a variety of essential mountaineering techniques, including knot tying, belaying, and crampon and ice axe usage.

We will practice belaying and maneuvering on the Ziegelwies wall, which is a 20 minute hike from our hotel in Füssen, before packing up the next day and heading out to Piztal in Tyrol. Once we arrive at the trailhead, we will ascend over the Taschach glacier and on to the Taschachhaus mountain hut.

We will get an early start the next day and put some of our newly acquired skills to the test as we climb the Sexegerten Spitze. This peak is perfect for learning by doing and, as we go along, we will learn how to tie in, mountaineer in the most energy-efficient manner and use a Via Ferrata.

After another day of learning different anchoring and safety techniques, we will get an early start and make our way back over the Taschach glacier and on to Tyrol’s tallest peak – Wildspitze.

After taking in the breathtaking views from the summit, we will head back down to the mountain hut and enjoy a well-deserved evening of great food and even better beer. The next morning, we will have a brief session learning self-rescue techniques before heading back to the hotel in Füssen and saying our goodbyes.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for your epic 8-day mountaineering experience in the heart of the Austrian Alps!

About the guide

I am in the mountains all year-round, either guiding a trip or exploring on my own. Mountain guiding is not only my profession and passion but also my inner calling. I am a qualified IFMGA mountain and ski guide.

In 2012, I established my mountaineering school "Mountains" with the motto: Quality guiding on snow, rock and ice. You can count on a low client to guide ratio, reliable gear and high quality programs led by our talented team of guides. We are not adrenaline junkies - we put safety first and strive to meet and exceed all of our clients' needs.

We take great pride in having more than 30% returning clients and would be thrilled to welcome you to our "Mountains" family during your next rock, snow or ice adventure!
