Sport Climbing in Imst, Austria

Imst is one of the top sport climbing areas in Austria and a great destination for any sport climber. Multiple different crags offer climbing for all levels and the crags are exceptionally well maintained. The grades offer something for all, but there's especially many routes in the 6th grade. The rock in the area is mainly limestone and the quality varies from excellent to sometimes a bit less compact. The routes are of varying styles but the most common style is technical face climbing. The scenery offers typical alpine views with beautiful green valleys with alpine villages, surrounded by mountains. The best season to visit Imst is in spring and autumn. As many of the crags are south-facing, summers are usually too warm. On the other hand, the orientation makes winter climbing during sunny days possible! These topos cover currently the biggest crags in the area: Nassereith, Starkenbach and Karres, and more content is coming up! In addition, Ötztal crags are not far away and they offer hundreds more routes to explore.
