Between heaven and earth
CLIMBING IN THE ÖTZTAL IN TYROL
Trapeze artists of the alpine mountains. Rope dancers going up and down. Acrobats who defy gravity. Those who understand the mountain and summit experts. Climbers do not hang on the cliff faces. They dance with them.
The boom in the nature-based, trendy sport of climbing – in all its variations – is something of a consequence of its portrayal in the media, in films like Vertical Limit, Cliff-hanger and Mission Impossible. These films are rather more a response to the increasing popularity of this unique sport. And it’s no wonder – increasing numbers of people are now yearning for what is original and real, in these days of technology and speedy progress. They are looking for something concrete. A challenge created by nature. For a place like the Ötztal.
Family-friendly climbing courses, challenging cliff faces and via ferrata routes and the superb Tauferberg in Niederthai provide an enormous spectrum of terrain, difficulty levels and climbing variants here. Plenty of climbing courses provide the know-how you need and even beginners get some important safety tips.
Steep. High. Variety-packed.
