Two of the five most ingenious sport climbing routes for experts on the rock are can be found in Ötztal. This was the opinion of a jury, which assessed criteria such as nature and landscape experience, route, rock texture, physical and mental demands on climbers. The route “Le Miracle” (7b) in Niederthai and the multi-faceted “Weißer Riese” (6b) climbing in the Nösslach climbing garden are therefore on the to-do list for ambitious climbers in Ötztal. Followed by some challenging multi-pitch routes, for example at Burgsteinwand near Längenfeld or Engelswand near Tumpen.
If one pitch is enough for you in one of the 20 climbing gardens or if you prefer to be on one of the 8 continuously secured via ferrata, just go ahead! The climbing gardens in Oberried and Tumpen offer ideal conditions for both beginners and families. The via ferrata along the Stuiben Falls - Tirol's biggest waterfall - presents a spectacular landscape. Accompanied by the roaring water masses, young and old work their way up the very well secured path over stepped terrain. Special step aids make the ascent easier. Längenfeld’s Lehner Wasserfall via ferrata of intermediate difficulty combines rock and water experiences in an ingenious way.
