Austria’s highest climbing tower: only in Tyrol

The Eiger North Face of climbing towers – are you up to the challenge?

Our climbing tower in Tyrol has thrown off many a climber. It is said that this wall has its own distinct personality. Maybe you’ll experience it yourself when you come visit us for Austria’s highest climbing tower. Some say it’s staring at them wherever they go, and others believe you can hear it whisper: “Climb me, if you can.”

The highest artificial climbing tower in all of Austria provides quite the challenge, giving even climbing pros sleepless nights. This is due not only to its height of 27 metres, but also to its technical requirements. These are also the reason why the entire lead climbing area is considered a noob-free zone. Only those who have passed the ÖAV or DAV lead climbing exam, or those can provide proof of a similar qualification are allowed on this wall.

Have you forgotten your equipment due to your excitement? No worries! Here at our AREA 47 climber’s paradise, we have all the climbing gear and equipment you need for an impeccable lead climbing experience to rent at competitive prices. Our pro tip: combine climbing at Austria’s highest climbing tower in the Ötztal, Tyrol with some refreshing water action in our Water AREA (Water AREA).
