Bouldering and sport climbing are now two of the most popular sports. It makes no difference whether you’re in a hall or on a rock - you climb up without a rope to a certain height and then jump back down onto a mat (crash pad). The mat is always provided in a hall but you have to take your own with you if you climb outdoors. Several regions in Tyrol are well-known not only to the local bouldering fans and attract a great many visitors, especially in the summer months.
Funded bouldering areas
At the moment there are 5 bouldering areas in Tyrol. These boulder areas are located in the district Schwaz.
A few cases have shown, however, that the contractual usage agreement with the landowners would be very sensible and expedient in order to prevent conflicts or indeed the closure (= ”Entry forbidden”) of bouldering areas.
The following applies to all bouldering areas ...
- Park your car only at the designated and signposted car parks
- Always keep to the marked paths - whether walking through a forest or across a field
- Do not enter areas of agricultural use, especially in the growing season
- Do not leave any rubbish behind
- Camping and open fires are only permitted in the areas designated for this purpose
- On the access paths as well as in the bouldering area itself, look out for flora and fauna and always close gates behind you
