I invite you to an exciting 2-day ice climbing guided course, exploring some of the best multi-pitching routes in Pitztal.

Pitztal is an alpine valley in Tyrol, Austria, which is considered as a paradise for ice climbers. It has many waterfalls and incredible gorges, as well as a glacier ice cave. In fact, there are more than 50 climbing routes, for almost every level of difficulty, from light to heavy routes!

Most of the routes are at 1-hour hike. Kitzgarten and Taschachschlucht , for example, are two great training areas we’re going to visit. Besides, if the weather conditions are not as good as we wish, we can move to other spots like the Sellrein or Ochsengarten.

I recommend this 2-day course for advanced climbers who want to improve their skills in the ice. We’ll practice multi-pitch ice climbing in mix routes with both ice and rocks. But before that, you’ll receive a complete training.

In addition, we are staying in a nice hotel in the valley for the night.

If you want to be a part of this adventure and learn more about this fascinating sport, please contact me! I will be glad to be your guide and show you the best spots in Pitztal.

What happens if I need to cancel the trip?
If you decide to cancel, you’ll get a 100% refund (minus fees) if the cancellation is notified up to 60 days before the start of the tour, a 75% refund (minus fees) if you cancel between 59 and 30 days before the start of the tour, and a 50% refund if you cancel between 29 and 21 days before the start of the tour. If you cancel less than 21 days before the first day of the tour, you won’t receive a refund. Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.

What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).

What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.

 

Itinerary

 
  • Day 1: Training

    We meet on the glacier express train parking After a brief welcome and checking our equipment, we’ll start hiking through a short path to Taschachschlucht.

    There we’ll refresh our previous knowledge, so that we are all on the same stand.

    We’ll have the opportunity to spend the whole morning at top-rope climbing on the topics “Putting ice screws”, “Schlagtechnik” and “Fußchnik”.

    During the afternoon, we’ll focus on the two training points “Stand Construction” and “Preparing for Ice Climbing in Advance”.

    Then, we’ll have enough time to deal with individual questions and prepare ourselves for our tour the next day.

  • Day 2: Ice climbing

    Depending on the skills of the group today we’ll practice ice climbing in one of the many multi-pitch routes in Pitztal.
