Get out ouf the indoor climbing park and into real rock climbing! In our alpine climbing course you learn, how to climb multi-pitch routes. We teach you how to build belaying points and how to do the correct rope and belaying techniques.
Our basecamp is the beautiful Kaunergrat hut at 2.817 m above sea level. The hut is our second home in the wild Kaunergrat mountain range. Here we know every rock by its name and know where to find the best routes for our purposes.
