Advanced alpine climbing course in Lesachtal


Would you like to improve your alpine climbing skills? Then join this 4-day course in Lesachtal, Austria, along Josef, an IFMGA certified guide.

Not specified


4 Days

Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep


Join me in this 4-day advanced alpine climbing course in Lesachtal and improve your skills in the alpine terrain! If you already have alpine climbing experience, then this is the perfect course for you.

We will meet at the Wolayersee hut, in Sankt Lorenzen. It's located in the beautiful valley of Lesachtal, in Austria.

Alpine climbing means primarily climbing a route which is only partially secured. So, we use mobile securing devices for protection, such as wedges, pitons and friends which the leader lays down and are taken by another climber.

Personally, I think that using several lengths of top rope and mobile back up devices is a central part of alpine climbing. The course content will be  the following:

• Climbing rules, partner check and correct backup
• Construction of the rope course
• Placing mobile backup devices
• Construction, leveling & anchoring series
• Multiple routes

Also, you can check the detailed itinerary below this description.

So if you find this alpine climbing course interesting, contact me! I will answer any questions you may have about this program in Lesachtal. We will spend 5 great days! You can also check my 4-day sport climbing course in Lesachtal.

About the guide

I’m a IFMGA certified mountain guide and a nature lover. I was born in 1983 and I studied Cultural and social anthropology at the Vienna University.

Mountains, water, cultures have been always my passion. That’s why I’m a mountain, ski, canyoning and rafting guide, also a ski instructor and a snowboard enthusiast.

Helene and myself are the owners of the Hepi lodge. A space for mountaineers, climbers, skiing enthusiasts where besides offering the accommodation service we proposed varied programmes of different activities: rock climbing, ski touring, canyoning, hiking tours.

I guide most of my time in Lesachtal Valley: St Lorenzen, St Jakob, Birnbaum, Karnische Alps and Lienz Dolomites.

I love guiding people from all around the world and help them discover my region and its beauties doing what they like most! Feel free to contact me to discuss about your expectations and what I can offer you. We will share a great time together!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
