This valley – accessed via the prominent Stubai Valley – is home to impressive cliffs is the geographical collision point of two different types of rock. Standing in the valley, if you look left, you are greeting by imposing limestone cliffs. The ‘Abbrüche’ of the so-called Kirchdachspitzen tower more than 600 Meters, and the Ilmspitzen, lying behind, is something that one would expect to find in the Dolomites! In contrast, looking to the right you see ‚Urgestein‘ and lush green fields. This trip, we stick to the steep walls on the left side of the valley. In this case, ‘we’ refers to the ice climbers and athletes who came together for the AUSTRIALPIN team meeting. We meet on Friday in the beginning of February and are greeted by top conditions and cold temperatures. Coming together are Harald Berger, Roli Striemitzer, Benni Hangl, Cathy Laflamme, Mark Oberlechner, Matthias Wurzer, Christian Piccolruaz and Peter Manhartsberger as Photographer.
