Introductory bouldering course in Lesachtal

Introductory bouldering course in Lesachtal | Austria

Join Josef, an IFMGA certified guide, on this basic 6-day bouldering course. You will learn and practice basic techniques in the Obergail Valley.

Not specified

6 Days

Sep, Oct, Nov

Open To Everyone

First Time


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!

Mountain 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.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



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.
