...to be around in a vertical rock

How did I discover this kind of sport? 
As little child I familiarized with this wilderness, given to the steep meadows and slopes of the Mühlwalder valley and my way to school of two hours from the Stoanahof to the valley and back. A constant training for my successes in climbing later on. I was inducted into climbing by some friends of mine. They convinced me to go to a climbing crag. We had a lot of fun there and I felt right away that for me it was a fantastic feeling to be around in a vertical rock.

What do I love of this kind of sport/activity? 
As climber you get to the most beautiful places in the world. Your are close to nature and you can be inspired by its beauty. The mountain is a real challenge. You have to face up constantly to new circumstances and start a creative problem solving.

Why is the Tauferer Ahrntal/Valle di Tures e Aurina suitable for this kind of sport/activity ? And what do I find particularly great in this valley for that kind of sport? 
With about 65 three thousand meters high mountains the „Tauferer Ahrntal“ is extremely varied and appeals to a broad interest group. There is something for everybody. Besides the three thousand meters high mountains, impossible to reach for some persons without a guide, the Tauferer Ahrntal is a beautiful Eldorado for wonderful alpine hiking. For me as alpine guide this area is ideal for ski tours. Ascents between500 and 2150 meters elevation gain are not rare. Also ice climbing has a big tradition and meaning here. The ice climbing freak finds here tours in all levels of difficulty and in the winter also the snow shoe walkers will have their money’s worth.

My inside tip: 
The sunrise on the „Weißzint“ is a very particular experience for me.
