1 day.: Meeting point and welcome at 9.00 a.m. in the Alpengasthof Bodenhaus at the end of the Rauris valley. Here we are picked up by the hut shuttle and transported up to the hut. After checking into the hut, we immediately start to the surrounding natural waterfalls. What has already been learned in other courses is repeated and trained further. In the evening there is still a theory unit "Tour planning" on the program.

2 day.:After breakfast we start again to a chosen waterfall. In methodical steps we approach the lead and learn all the special rope techniques that are necessary for this.

3 day.:Time to take the lead! Once again we turn our attention to lead climbing training and consolidate the safety technique.

4 day.:What has been learned is repeated and consolidated again. We will climb until around noon. Afterwards we sat down together comfortably and discussed the last few days and how it could possibly go on.

Special offers

Courses are always difficult for me to organize because the group size and thus the minimum number of participants is often not reached. That's annoying, because some time was already spent on the planning and it's a shame if the course doesn't take place after all. That's why I offer those who can organize a group of friends or acquaintances a "treat" of -10% of the course costs. The participants in smaller groups often make more progress than in large groups, so I have generally limited myself to a maximum of 4 participants on many courses in order to be able to get the best out of everyone.
