Rock climbing and mountaineering
Vertical adventures in the Carnic and Gailtaler Alps
There is no better way of experiencing the mountains at first hand than through rock climbing and mountaineering. Feel the rockface, set your sights high and defy gravity on the way to the top!
The Nassfeld region has a number of "via ferrata", climbing trails with metal handholds and footholds as well as a wire safety rope anchored into the rockface. Popular routes can be found on the Rosskofel, Trogkofel, Malurch, Zottachkofel and Gartnerkofel mountains and are an excellent combination of hiking and rock climbing, offering those with a head for heights wonderful views of the surrounding region.
Rock climbing lessons and equipment hire
In cooperation with the "Alpinschule Sepp Szöke", Sport Sölle offers a wide range of rock climbing courses for a range of ability levels. Those who have also conquered the "climbing labyrinth" can take the next step and tackle real rockfaces. Courses include comprehensive information about skills such as belaying, top-rope climbing and via ferrata techniques.
