This is a comprehensive guidebook covering the sport climbing around Innsbruck in the Tyrol state of Austria. The state of Tyrol (Tirol in German) is located in the heart of the eastern Alps, and is Austria’s premier sport climbing area. This vast area is home to many 1000’s of single pitch sport routes on both granite and limestone rock.
The guidebook is split into 8 main areas covering 92 separate crags and over 4,500 routes across a wide range of grades from F3+ to F9a+. The vast majority of the routes are single pitch though there are a few 2 and 3 pitch routes as well. The 8 main areas are Innsbruck, Otztal, Imst, Reutte, Zillertal, Wilder Kaiser, Rofan, and Osttirol. Included are the classic crags of Schieierwasserfall (limestone rock) near Innsbruck and Ewige Jagdgründe (granite rock) in Zillertal.
All the routes are shown on colour photo topos, along with the route length. At the start of each crag is a location map and approach information. Symbols then indicate the overall quality of the crag (rated out of 5 stars), walking approach time, best time of the year to climb, altitude, how good the bolting is, and the number of routes at each grade. Further symbols indicate the style of climbing that ranges from slabs, vertical, overhanging or roof climbing.
