Have you always wanted to try bouldering? Would you like to climb without ropes and harnesses? Then join me on this 6-day bouldering course in Lesachtal and learn all you need to know about this exciting activity!

Bouldering reduces climbing to the minimum. Climbing shoes, magnesium and a boulder mat are enough to start climbing small and larger boulders. The challenge lies in the sum of single moves and not in the height to be overcomed.

We will stay at the Hepi Lodge. From there, we will drive to the Obergailer Valley to learn and practice bouldering techniques. You can check the day by day itinerary below this text.

We will start the first moves without much effort. I will teach you various climbing techniques. Also, I think moderate bouldering is an ideal way to inspire children for climbing. They can enjoy the experience without long explanations on rope and safety technology.

This course takes place from Thursdays to Sundays. The content will be the following:

  • Bouldering techniques
  • Boulder creation
  • Spotting
  • Tips and tricks when bouldering

So, if you are interested on this bouldering course, contact me! I will be happy to answer any questions you may have about the program. You can also check my via ferrata day tour in Millnatzen. It’s also great fun!
