Sport Climbing Areas in the Dolomites of Val d'Ega
Climbing with wonderful panoramic views and alpenglow
Beautifully situated in the landscape, perfectly signposted and tested every year, the Eggenal climbing gardens stretch from the Latemar to the Rosengarten. Unique climbing on dolomite ledges, route heights of up to over 20 metres and a wide selection of routes at all levels of difficulty make climbing in the Eggen Valley a very special experience.
Kleine Rotwand - Carezza
At the foot of the Roda di Vael there are boulders of various shapes in which several sport climbing routes are drilled. The climbing garden above and below the Niger road promises climbing on beautiful dolomite. Even though the routes are relatively short, they are suitable for those who climb around the sixth degree of the French scale.
Rock: Dolomite, overhanging climbing on ledges and holes.
Getting here: From Bolzano via Val d'Ega to Nova Levante. Shortly before the Karer Pass, turn off in the direction of the Niger Pass. After about a kilometre, park at the car park on the right.
For the sector "Kaiserstein", follow trail no. 9B on the upper slope side (approx. 10 min from the car park).
For the sector "Kloans Roatwandl", follow trail no. 9 at the crossroads (approx. 20 min).
The sector "Indianerstein" is a little further up the slope towards the northeast.
For the sectors below the Niger Road (First & Second stone & "Laurinstein") there are signposts and markings (red dots and cairns for the "Laurinstein").
Vipernstein – Eggentaler Almen
The Vipernstein is located on the Eggentaler Almen, an impressive mountain backdrop nestled between Latemar and Zanggenberg.
Rock: Latemar limestone
Approach & access: from Obereggen (upper car park) in the direction of the Eggentaler Almen, past the Epircher-Laner-Alm and from there about 1 km further to the car park. Then follow the road on foot to Weigler Schupfe, then about 100 m down the meadow to the right. It takes about 15 min from the car park to the climbing rock.
High season 04.07. - 28.08.2021 Road to the Eggentaler Almen closed from 09.00 am - 5.00 pm daily. Therefore ascent with the cable car Ochsenweide, from there further along the road to Weigler Schupfe, then approx. 100 m down the meadow to the right. It takes about 1 hour from the Ochsenweide mountain station to the climbing rock.
