Ice climbing in Sellrain, Stubaital valley and at the Brenner Pass. There is something for each ice climber's taste. From easy to difficult, from short to long access, there is something for everyone. The traffic connection could not be better, because you can reach the parking lots of the respective icefalls in 5 minutes from the motorway (Brenner) to 30 minutes (Stubai and Lüsens). This comfort however you get paid back by the number of ice climbers. That is why we recommend to plan your routes on weekdays, if possible, and rather avoid the weekends.

The icefalls of the region Sellrain, Stubaital valley and Brenner are located in North Tyrol, south of Innsbruck. The A12 Inntal motorway allows a quick and pleasant access. We set up our base camp in Götzens or Axams in order to be as flexible as possible and to reach the side valleys in about half an hour.
Accommodation and food are not included in the price. In this region, accommodation is available in every price category. We recommend to book the accommodation early enough as especially in the high season (Christmas, February - March), places can be fully booked quickly.
Here are some addresses:
Neustift im Stubaital
Technical material is included in the price.
Since we do not climb constantly, there can be "standing times" in cold temperatures, so make sure to bring along enough warm clothes - one cools down quite quickly!
We recommend you bring light clothing of varying thickness to achieve an "onion system" for greater comfort. Cotton is not suitable as it quickly becomes cold upon getting wet. Skiing apparel, however, works well. Our recommendation: warm merino underwear and a fast warming down jacket.
- long underwear (bottom and top), synthetic, merino or wool
- warm pants (lined or fleece)
- warm fleece or long sleeve shirt (not cotton)
- lined jacket or vest, preferably down jacket
- waterproof jacket with hood (Gore-Tex or nylon)
- waterproof pants (Gore-Tex or nylon)
- socks (merino or ski socks)
- woolen cap or lined cap that protects your ears and fits under a helmet
- waterproof climbing gloves (2 pairs)
- solid mountain boots (in exceptional cases ski boots are also possible)
- gaiters if necessary
