Klassischer Renkfall - Kaunertal

First ascent: Florian Schranz & Egon Netzer
By: Albert Leichtfried, Mountain Guide
Area: Central Alps, Group: Kaunertal, Peak: Kaunertal, Height: 2000m, Country: Austria, Region: Tyrol

The high lying Renkfälle offer an impressive, breathtaking alpine ambient and almost a dozen icefalls ranging from WI4 to WI6 are located within a stone's throw of each other. The large variety on offer and the alpine environment close to the refuge Anton-Renk-Hütte ensure that this is one of the best ice climbing areas in the Tyrol. Most routes were first ascended by Florian Schranz and Egon Netzer and the classic Renkfall is extremely popular with almost constant difficulties throughout its 3 pitches.

GETTING THERE

From Landeck drive to Ried, leave the highway and continue to St. Christina, then turn off left towards Gfrans. Follow the forest track to the barrier.

ACCESS

Continue upwards to reach the icefalls at the valley head in circa 1.5 hours. Beware of avalanches.

DESCENT

Abseil down the route

NOTES

Best climbed in late winter, as better ice conditions make up for the long walk-in.
