Climbing, fixed-rope ascents and arl.rock
Magnificent climbing tours on the Arlberg
The Arlberg has everything to appeal to climbing enthusiasts. The high altitude, with some areas above the tree line, makes it much easier to find a suitable ascent. There are also some delightful tours on offer. The arl.rock is a great place to get started, and the experienced mountain guides in St. Anton will soon get you on the right track.
Climbing on the Arlberg
There are several lovely climbing tours and fixed-rope ascents in the region around St. Anton. These include the Roggalkante, Roggspitze and Rote Wand tours.

Climbing in winter
Tyrol's only fixed-rope climbing route is located on the Arlberg. From the Riffelbahn 2 mountain station, set off on your snowshoes over the Rendelspitze to the Rossfall Gap. From here, the climbing route ascends 850 metres over cliff face and snow with continuous steel safety cables. In winter, several frozen waterfalls can be seen nearby.
The arl.rock sport and climbing centre also contains facilities for tennis, squash and ten-pin bowling.
