Ice climbing

Gsallbachfall - Kaunertal

Beautiful waterfall embedded in an impressive canyon.

Approach: Parking lot by a right-hand bend ca. 300 m before the hamlet of Vergötschen.

Ascent: Follow the ride shoulder on the orographic right side of the Gsallbach brook to the foot of the waterfall. (15 min)
Descent: The two lower levels are equipped with abseiling belays. If you clomb the entire waterfall, we recommend you taking the hiking trail towards Gsallalm back. (appr. 1 h)

Caution: A large icicle often forms on the second-last level (20 m) due to the direct sunlight from the west please proceed with caution when the sun is shining! Also very high avalanche risk in the spring.
