Where there lots of mountains, there are lots of cliff faces. And anywhere there are lots of cliff faces, is a place that climbers of all abilities yearn for. In the global climbing scene, Ötztal is regarded as being synonymous as a climber’s paradise and rightly so, thanks its fantastic infrastructure. In the 20 via ferrata routes alone, which have some 750 routes, performance-oriented climbers will find almost non-stop vertical playground, in all difficulty levels. Secured by steel cable throughout, 7 via ferrata routes in Ötztal take you up high. Treading on the cliff faces is your route to exhilaration – there are many key points that require power, skill and courage. Helmet, chest & hip belts along with carabiners are absolutely necessary for this mountain climbing challenge. After all – ‘Safety First!’ applies here.
Carabiners, ropes, belts, slings, safety equipment – everything you need for a steep cliff face. You will find the biggest selection in Ötztal here. Our specialist mountain advisors – who enjoy heading out on to the rock faces themselves - are happy to help and know what it’s all about.
For sport climbing the right climbing trousers are the most important item of clothing. Elastic materials and an optimised cut are key attributes. For Alpine climbing I recommend soft shell trousers made from windproof material that is robust and stretchy. Flat, pockets that are suitable for a climbing belt, reinforced knees, and fast drying material are the perfect way to finish these trousers.
Have confidence in your equipment – only use mountain sports equipment which meets safety standards (CE mark) & study the instructions for use carefully. Partner check before every start – check each other. Figure-eight loop, belt buckle, safety harness, carabiner locking, rope ends. And of course – pay full attention when you are securing! Your partner’s life is in your hands.
