Ice climbing in Gastein

Climbing on frozen waterfalls is one of the most enticing kinds of mountain climbing. Ice is both fascinating and multifaceted. Hardly any other natural structure comes in as many different shapes and variations as ice. And that’s what makes it interesting: You’ll always discover something new. Ice is never the same as on the previous day, let alone the previous year. The structure of ice can frequently change within hours.


My years as part of the training team at the Austrian mountain guide association gave me lots of experience and knowledge in the area of ice climbing. It’d be my great pleasure to introduce you to this fascinating sport during your active holiday in Gastein.

    Ice climbing for beginners

    Receive thorough training for ice equipment and crampons, as well as instructions on the safety techniques. Learning by doing gives you the necessary security and familiarity with the waterfall ice.

    Ice climbing for advanced climbers

    You’ve always wanted to climb through a waterfall? Easy or extreme, no problem – your wish is fulfilled in two-person or three-person rope teams. All you need are crampon - ready mountain shoes and warm, breathable clothing; I provide modern ice equipment.
