Guidebook

Non-Glaciated Mountaineering Missions Around Innsbruck

You don't need to put crampons on and deal with any glaciers to have epic mountaineering adventures in the Tirol!

Description

For those who like their mountaineering lightweight and not too cold, this is the guidebook you're looking for! All of these routes involve wonderful mountaineering, wild views and minimal suffering; a pleasant contrast to many alpine adventures!

All of the routes can be reached in a maximum of 1 hour driving from Innsbruck and need to be snow free. As such, ticking them off in a busy, sunny week at the height of summer provides a good challenge for motivated and fit climbers.
