Climbing in Val Senales in South Tyrol

Climbing is about pure emotion: Switching off and action, challenges and happiness. And what could be a better setting for one of the most popular mountain sports than the Alpine Arena Senales? Around the Val Senales head and the glacier area you can conquer bouldering, various routes, vertical rock faces - and even your fear of heights! For beginners and families we recommend the Ötzi Rope Park climbing garden just before Kurzras and the new Larix via ferrata with parallel hiking trail in the Alpin Arena Senales. 

Other climbing options near Val Senales in South Tyrol: the Mastaun climbing garden near the village of Unser Frau, the Juval castle climbing garden and the Hoachwool via ferrata - both at the entrance to the valley.

NEW! Larix Ferrata & Alpin Trail 

Attention climbing freaks: Since June there is the new via ferrata "Larix" (Latin for larch) and the parallel adventure hiking trail "Alpin Trail" in Maso Corto. The two trails cross at several points and so families, for example, can start together, some via the action-packed via ferrata and others via the challenging hiking trail. The via ferrata runs over several bridges, a rope slide and partly challenging climbing passages. First you reach the reservoir, then you continue over a rocky rise to the campsite from the Bronze Age to above the Teufelsegg Hut. The way back is via the Alpin Trail. The via ferrata repeatedly crosses the hiking trail and can be used for the exit. Experienced hikers and sporty climbers alike will get their money's worth.

Prerequisite: via ferrata equipment (rental in Maso Corto at Sportservice Erwin Stricker or Ski Factory Maso Corto).

Entrance: behind the Roter Kofel chairlift, at the foot of the large Kurzrasbach waterfall
Exit: above the Teufelsegg hut (not managed)
