Chinese Wall | Leutasch

The “Chinesische Mauer” climbing route (Leutasch climbing area) has been selected by Climbers Paradise Tirol as one of the "Great Lines – 5 Inspirational Climbing Routes in Tyrol".

“PULS 2000“: PANORAMIC CLIMBING ROUTE

"Located on the right-hand side of the Chinesische Mauer, this route offers spectacular views and is one of the most photogenic in the whole area." (Michael Meisl)

Climbing area: Chinesische Mauer, Seefeld in Tirol

Difficulty: 7 c+

Length: 22 metres

Developer: Heinz Zak, G. Walch (1992)

This ‘Chinese Wall’ is of course not in China but rather in Leutasch near Seefeld in Tyrol. 176 routes and 11 sections provide excellent climbing conditions and those who feel comfortable with grade 7 on the difficulty scale can power up on the compact limestone rock.  “Puls 2000“ in the “Dodlwand“ section is perhaps the best-known route and the steep climbing with pockets, undercuts and ledges requires strength and endurance. Those who make it all the way to the top can enjoy a magnificent view over the Chinese Wall - without having to travel to the Far East.

 

KEY SELECTION CRITERIA

Nature and landscape experience, routes, rock structure, physically and mentally demanding for climbers. Passionate climbers looking for especially beautiful projects at grades 6 and 7 on the difficulty scale can find high-quality photos, videos, topos and further information about the five "Great Lines" on www.tirol.at/greatlines

With numerous routes in the “Climbers Paradise Tirol”, it is no easy task to select five "Great Lines". Nevertheless, a jury of experts made up of Barbara Bacher, Barbara Zangerl, Kilian Fischhuber, Markus Schwaiger, Martina Harnisch and Michael Meisl, took on the challenge and made their selection. They chose climbing routes based on the nature and landscape experience, the actual route, the rock structure, as well as the physical and mental demands on the climbers.

The “Great Lines“ Jury

  • Barbara Bacher, professional climber from Längenfeld in the Ötz valley and a member of the Austria Climbing Team.
  • Barbara Zangerl, professional climber from Strengen am Arlberg. The first woman to climb the “Alpen Trilogie“, including the “Des Kaisers neue Kleider“ (Emperor’s New Clothes) in the Wilder Kaiser.
  • Kilian Fischhuber, former professional climber who lives in Innsbruck. European champion and two-time world champion runner-up in bouldering and the first male climber to win the overall world cup in bouldering five times.
  • Markus Schwaiger, employee with the Austrian Alpine Association in Innsbruck, in the mountaineering department. Area of responsibility: sport climbing.
  • Martina Harnisch, physicist and former competitive climber who lives in Innsbruck. An 8a+ ‘on sight’ is nothing unusual for her.
