The Gesäuse National Park, located in the Upper Styrian region, is my favorite place in Austria to rock climb. Why not joining me for several days and experience true wilderness in the middle of the Austrian Alps ?

The Gesäuse National Park is also called the University of Mountaineering since the spot here is fantastic to learn and progress in rock climbing.

There are several reasons why I enjoy so much coming here and guide my friends and clients on these walls.

  1. Very few people come in the Gesäuse Park. There are no cable car and no easy way to go up the mountains. You’ll find peace and silence.

  2. The rock and walls are incredible. There are climbing routes for all levels, for beginners as well as for experienced climbers. There are a lot of different options so most of the time we will be climbing alone.

  3. The landscape is amazing. There are forests, green and blue rivers, rocky faces…it’s a true wild place !

We can go there for 2 or more days and stay at night in one of the mountain huts (Haindlkarhütte, Hesshütte or Buchsteinhütte) or in a lovely hostel in Johnsbach.

The number of climbers I will take with me will depend on the program we define together. You can hire me to guide you and show you the best spots, or to organize for you a climbing course to get the basics and the necessary technics to progress.

If you want to experience different outdoor activities while staying here, you can combine some rock climbing with via ferrata, rafting and canyoning.

Feel free to contact me if you plan to come in Styria and if you want to go climbing in this amazing place. It will be my great pleasure to show you around and let your discover my secret climbing spots.

If we climb there for several days, we can stay in one of the huts (Haindlkarhütte, Hesshütte or Buchsteinhütte) or in a hostel in Johnsbach.

Meeting point

We have different options. We could meet in Liezen for example and from there, use my car to go to the Gesäuse National Park. You can easily reach Liezen by train, coming from Salzburg, Vienna, Linz or Graz.

About the guide

I have been in the mountains since my childhood, mainly in Styria where I come from. I'm now based in Liezen. I have studied biology and I'm now a full time IFMGA mountain guide since 2015.

I enjoy very much guiding my friends and clients in the Austrian Alps and show them places they could not see without being guided. I love spending my days outside, whatever the weather and help people living unique experiences in the outdoor.

Feel free to contact me if you plan to come to Austria and if you want to experience wild nature far from the crowd, whatever the season.

I speak German, English and a little bit of Spanish.

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

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
