Not specified


4 Days

Sep, Oct


I invite you to join me in this 4-day sport climbing course in St.Lorenzen, in the beautiful valley of Lesachtal, Austria. We will learn, climb and enjoy every moment of this course!

We will stay at the Wolayersee hut, a perfect place to learn the secrets of top rope climbing. Besides, we will be able to relax on the spa area after the climb.

In the case of sport climbing, a distinction is made between top rope climbing, which ensures rope safety from above, and climbing with a rope from below. Therefore, in top rope climbing, the rope is already at the end of the climbing route, which gives more safety to the climber.

You can learn all about it in this basic course. When leading a climb, the climber has to bring the rope itself from below to the end of the route, then at the turning point it allows a safer abseil.

The course content is the following:

• Climbing rules
• Partner check
• Correct back up -Dynamic back up
• Threading at the turning point
• Correct grasping and climbing 

So contact me if you want to join this 4-day sport climbing course! I will be happy to answer any questions you may have about this program. We will have a great time out in the rocks in Lesachtal!

I also offer a 5-day introductory via ferrata course in Liesing, Lesachtal. Check it out!

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

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!
