Geierwand, the crag overlooking Dolomites Dürrensee

di

Hannes Pfeifhofer introduces the beautiful crag Geierwand crag in in Höhlensteintal valley, Dolomites, just before the Dolorock Climbing Festival scheduled to take place from 25 to 27 May 2018 below the Tre Cime di Lavaredo.

Located at about 1700 meters, the Geierwand crag provides a splendid view down onto lake Dürrensee and the Höhlensteintal. The first climbs were bolted by Cortina-based climber Massimo da Pozzo, I then bolted the others.

The yellow Dolomite limestone hosts athletic climbs up to 35 m high from 4a to 8c, and climbing is possible almost all year round, even in bad weather as the crag remains dry after extended periods of rain. A visit here is highly recommended, even during the Dolorock Climbing Festival and despite the steep and a somewhat tiring approach.
