Ice climbing in Tyrol's Kaunertal

The colder, the better!

Things go up in the Kaunertal year-round, even in winter!

Who else is looking forward to temperatures below freezing? Ice climbers, of course. This sport not only attracts experienced mountain climbers, but also an increasing number of courageous holidaymakers, too.

Climbing icy glacier walls and frozen waterfalls with ice axe and crampons: Are you ready for this sporting challenge surrounded by natural wonders?

The top 3 ice climbing routes in the Kaunertal

Fear of lust, the yellow river, and the twisted thread. Say what? These are the (translated) names of three of the best

ice climbing routes in the Tyrolean natural park and glacier region:

  • Angst vor Lust (Fear of Lust): free-hanging icicles, demanding, and above all mentally challenging, with an ice fall of 130 m, difficulty 3 to 6, and 15 minute ascent
  • Der gelbe fluss (The Yellow River): A rather short, but exhausting route with ice columns of up to 20 m high, an ice fall of 130 m, and difficulty level WI 5
  • Der Zwirn (Twisted Thread): challenging, ice fall of 160 m, difficulty level 6, 30 minute ascent, descent on bolts or Abalakov threads

 

Ready for your athletic challenge on the ice? If not, the Kaunertal pros will have you ice climbing in no time!

Want to read up on ice climbing in detail? The Kaunertal Tourist Information Office has an ice climbing guide for the entire Tyrolean Oberland. It includes a practical guide to the routes and detailed descriptions of the individual ice falls.
