Climbing in Weissbach bei Lofer
Climbing in the Salzburger Saalachtal
The Saalachtal around the area of Weißbach is truly a paradise for all climbers and mountain enthusiasts. The climbing locations can be easily reached from the village. Directly in the village you can find the climbing gardens, “Die Platt'n”, with a short approach and rather easy routes, as well as the “Kleine Verdon” and “Große Verdon”, which await climbers with sport climbing routes of a top level of difficulty. By biking, a bit of hiking, driving, or riding the "AlmErlebnisBus" that travels from Weißbach to Hintersee/Ramsau, the other climbing areas can be reached easily and comfortably. Several other climbing gardens along the cycling path from Weißbach to Saalfelden in Hohlwegen can also be found this way. A true Eldorado for cliff admires presents itself above the village of Weißbach.
Most of the approaches are easy and short, and there is parking in the direct vicinity of the climbing garden for those who travel by car. Also the new activity of “bouldering” has made its entry into Weißbach, and the boulders at the holiday meadows of the ÖAV are ideal for it. The new via ferrata "Die weiße Gams" (C/D) will make the hearts of even the most experienced via ferrata enthusiasts beat faster. It leads from Hotel Frohnwies up to Brechtl. In recent years, Weißbach has established itself as the Mecca of the climbing scene via its indispensable connection with the climbing sport and around 800 routes. From easy climbing exercise gardens to crisp sports climbing to the via ferrata and experiencing the Alps with multi-rope routes, the climbers of Weißbach will find something just for them.
The area offers climbing fun and challenges for everyone, beginner or total professional. A magnificent, wild, and unique site is guaranteed here and offers you a warm welcome to get your first experiences with a climbing course and to plan your perfect climbing weekend.
