Climbing at the Wilder Kaiser
Sport climbing, Alpine climbing, climbing halls and special offers
The Kaiser Mountains with their many summits and different rock formations from turrets to chimneys, ridges and smooth, steep rock walls, offer any number of options for everyone to experience rock up close. Whether you are making your first climbing attempts on the exercise rocks, a hard sports climb in the upper-most difficulty, a drilling-hook-secured alpine pleasure route or an adventurous alpine climbing route – the diverse offer of the Wilder Kaiser will include the right route for everyone to enjoy their very individual rock experience.
In bad weather, the climbing hall in Ellmau (converted in summer 2015) and the climbing halls in the surrounding towns offer the perfect alternative.The Wilder Kaiser has been one of the most popular and historic climbing mountains in Austria for generations. Famous alpine names such as Totenkirchl, Fleischbank, Predigtstuhl or the Schleierfall and Achleiten climbing gardens will trigger awe and sports ambition in alpinists and sports climbers. The breakthrough to the 7th degree of difficulty in the route "Pumprisse" at the Fleischbankpfeiler in 1977 is considered an important entry in climbing history, not only at the Wilder Kaiser.
