Climbs 1000 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 2996m a.s.l – Faces all

Crag features
Dachstein is a huge plateau mountain with south faces up to 1000m in height, an assortment of small glaciers and every conceivable type of mountain activity - climbing, via ferratas, ski mountaineering, caving.

Climbing started as early as the 1880ies, and there are quite a few big classics up to 50 (!) pitches. Many of these now have some bolts at the belays, but are still mountaineering routes with a glacier descent. In another development, more userfriendly bolted climbing at amenable grades and on shorter (200-350m) walls on the plateau have been developed. These are reached from the rather pricey cable car and have walk-ins up to one hour.

Several guidebooks are availlable that are more or less selective as well as quite a few topos across a variety of internet sites.

Topos of the Via ferratatas can be found here: http://issuu.com/ramsau-am-dachstein/docs/ferrata_2010_screen

Several Topos available at www.bergsteigen.com and http://www.mountain-unlimited.com/klettern-alpin-plaisir.html.
