Schleier Waterfall crag

Description

Not only is the Schleier Waterfall most certainly one of the most beautiful climbing areas in Austria, it’s also one with the greatest number of difficult routes. At the foot of the Maukspitze, in the centre of the 60-metre high dome of rock, a sparkling mountain stream plunges into the depths casting a veil of spray. The “Schleier” (veil) amphitheatre, with its unique landscape, perfect rocks, south-facing location and large overhangs, is ideal for climbing all year round. There are more than 200 routes and lots of projects, including some of the toughest routes in Europe and it’s rare to find so many in one place. 'Famous climbers such as Alexander Huber, Markus Bendler and Adam Ondra made a name for themselves here by being the first to complete climbs such as the Open Air (9a+), White Rose (9a/9a+), Mongo (9a) and Fugu (9a). But many traces are also to be found of Guido Unterwurzacher, the “Master of the Mountain” and an exceptionally talented local climber.
