How did I discover this kind of sport?
A friend of mine asked me to come with him and to try the ice climbing. After a few blows with the ice pick I was so fascinated that this feeling never abandoned me.

What do I love of this kind of sport/activity?
While ice climbing I look for adventure. To be able to climb on the frozen streams, pillars and icicles and to estimate how compact or fragile the ice structure is at the moment. I love best to get over my own limits and fears.

Why is the Tauferer Ahrntal Valley suitable for this kind of sport/activity?
And what do I find particularly great in this valley for that kind of sport?
Given to the numerous waterfalls and water gullies the Tauferer Ahrntal is ideal for that activity, but particularly advisable are the side valleys as Rein in Taufers/Riva di Tures or Lappach/Lappago, where you can find the most beautiful ice falls and mixed tours.

My inside tip
For all of you that just can’t wait: in the originary valley in Rein in Taufers/Riva di Tures a beautiful ice fall with three rope lengths forms already by the end of November and remains till April.
