Feeling, Rock, Stone

 

The mountaineering village of Ginzling has long been renowned as one of the best climbing areas in Europe. Approximately 7 km outside of Ginzling, tower two 60 metre high granite stones with a climbing difficulty of 4-10. You may well even find yourself climbing next to well-known sports climbers such as Matthias Schiestl and local climbing expert Gerhard Hörhager. This climbing terrain is known as the “Ewigen Jagdgründe” (“the eternal hunting ground”) and is a must for keen free climbers.

 

 

 

Bouldering is the latest fad in the Ziller Valley. Without a harness, ropes or helmet, climbers can scale countless bouldering routes just below the GrawandHütte. A mattress provides cushioning for soft falls. One of the most popular via ferrata routes of the Alps is the “Nasenwand-Klettersteig” (“Wet Wall”) in Ginzling. Scaling 400 altitude metres and leading to the historic “Floitenschlag” with an exit at 1,450m, this via ferrata is one of the most attractive routes for experienced climbers in the Ziller Valley.
