With rope, chalk and carabiners

Alpine climbing or rock climbing: if the word “climbing” is the most technical term you know, then you’d probably better stick to long hikes or well-secured fixed rope routes. But if you‘re an enthusiastic climber – keep reading.

The different Karawanken tours are ideal for both advanced inexperienced and for experienced Alpine rock-climbers. Mt. Koschutnikturm, with its routes at different levels of difficulty, is a particularly rewarding climb. And the Koschutahaus in Zell is the ideal starting point for a climbing weekend. With a length of three to nine rope-lengths, the tours are clearly mapped-out yet challenging and the descents via the fixed rope route are relatively pleasant too.

Climbing garden If you don’t happen to have time for a longer climbing tour, a trip to the climbing garden Klettergarten Rosenbach/Frießnitz in the town of St. Jakob is well worth the drive. There, you’ll find rock climbing routes in the conglomerate rock at levels of difficulty 5b to 7c. You’ll find more precise information in the guide “Klettern in Kärnten und Osttirol” by Ingo Neumann or at the municipal office of St. Jakob.
