Sport climbing course in St. Lorenzen, Lesachtal

Sport climbing course in St. Lorenzen, Lesachtal | undefined

Join this 4-day sport climbing course in St. Lorenzen, in the valley of Lesachtal in Austria, along Josef, an IFMGA certified guide.


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!

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.
