Oberreintalturm

Wetterstein, GERMANY

Climbs 7 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 1940m a.s.l – Faces all

Crag features
The Oberreintal is Germany's best multi-pitch climbing area. The small side valley above Garmisch-Partenkirchen has a high concentration of climbs on solid and rough limestone, typically up to ten pitches and 300m long, spread over several faces. Almost all climbs have bolt belays and most have bolt runners on the harder climbing.

The best known crags in the Oberreintal are the Oberreintalturm (the subject of this entry), the Unterer Schüsselkarturm, Oberreintaldom and the Unterer Berggeistturm (described in their own entries). The Schüsselkarspitze also lies at the head of the Oberreintal, but is almost never visited from this side.

Access notes
The Oberreintal hut is a dedicated climbers' hut. (Walkers are requested to stay away, at least at weekends.) Meals are not available, but the guardian can cook food which hut guests bring with them. The hut has had a number of extroverted hut guardians, such as Charly Wehrle, who have become famous within the German alpine climbing scene.

The walk-in is three to four hours long, most of this up a forest road. It is possible to shorten the approach with a mountain bike which can then be hidden in the forest before the final steep path up to the hut itself. Beside the path lie stacks of firewood, and hut guests are requested to take a piece with them on their way up.

The crags are mainly east-, north- and west-facing, so the warmest and driest months in the year are the best time for climbing in the Oberreintal.
