How do you climb a wall

Leutasch - climbing the Great Wall of China

After a short ascent from Leutasch / Puitbach to the Great Wall of China, you will find more than 160 routes in eleven sectors in the limestone.

The climbing area in Tyrol at around 1,200 m is demanding and rigorously rated, from the 6th French level you can have fun. There is plenty of variety - there are endurance routes at holes as well as athletic bouldering moves and long wall climbing.

Due to the high, rather quiet location, there are fabulous views of the surrounding mountains of the Wetterstein. Ascent to the wall: around 30 min.


From Innsbruck you drive on the A12 Inntalautobahn to the Seefeld / Garmisch exit. Follow the signs to Seefeld and Leutasch.

Drive straight through the district of Leutasch / Weidach and turn right in Gasse towards Mittenwald. Cross the Puitbach and turn right into the climbing parking lot near the Puitbach district.

The Naturfreundehaus Chalet Amis de la Nature Aurore is located directly on the Schwarzsee in the southwest of the Gantrisch Regional Nature Park, in the canton of Friborg. According to a legend, the water of the lake is so dark because a giant washed his feet in it. Is it true? The fact is, however, that the lake's sulphurous water has been used for therapeutic baths for many, many years. Chalet Amis is located on the east side of the lake at an altitude of 1,046 m, surrounded by the heights of the Schwyberg in the west, the rocky ridges of Les Reccardets and Spitzflue in the south and the Kaiseregg in the east.
