Friday thought #57 December…and we’re still rock climbing…!

I continue to marvel about how the good weather just keeps on coming in Innsbruck, and there are still no signs of it letting up in the near future. Despite starting to get a little concerned about whether winter will ever arrive, we’re thoroughly making the most of this unprecedented sunshine and, having discovered a superb little climbing area just 20 minutes drive from Innsbruck, have now been 3 times over the last 1o days! With a 5 minute walk in, enough sectors to keep you occupied for weeks, and grades from super easy to far too difficult (!), Arzbergklamm near Telfs has proved to be a brilliant find. Even now in mid-December it still holds the sun until after 1pm, and we have yet to see another person there. Stunning views, fun climbing and even a picturesque river running down the middle of the gorge. What more can you ask for?!

We had this crag completely to ourselves, not a single soul to be seen all day...

  1. Wow, absolutely gorgeous Sharon. We are having unusually mild weather here in Canada, lots of rain and overcast days and no snow.
    I used to rock climb when I was in British Columbia while in my 20’s,and I loved it. In Ontario these is very limited opportunity. There are some rock faces around, but there are legal issues, private property, and some have a requirement of using organized professional outfitters. I do the occasional indoor wall climb, but it is not quite the same.
    Love the pictures, (and a little jealous..haha). Amazing you climbing in T-shirts in December in the Alps. 🙂
