Ice climbing in Gastein

Climbing frozen waterfalls is one of the most appealing forms of mountaineering. Ice is fascinating and diverse. Hardly any other natural structure can be found as many forms and variations as ice. And that’s what makes it so interesting: You always discover something new. The ice cream is never like the day before or last year. The structure of the ice often changes within hours.

Thanks to my many years of work in the teaching team of the Austrian mountain guide training, I have a lot of experience and knowledge in the field of ice climbing. It would be my great pleasure to introduce you to this fascinating sport on your active holiday in Gastein.


Ice climbing for beginners

You will receive thorough training in the handling of ice axes and crampons as well as safety techniques. Learning by doing gives you the necessary security and familiarity in the waterfall.


Ice climbing for advanced

Always wanted to climb through a waterfall? Whether light or extreme, no problem: Your wish will be fulfilled in a rope team of two or three. All you need is crampon-compatible mountaineering boots and warm, breathable clothing; I provide modern ice equipment.
