Ice!

No matter what type of winter activities you fancy, the Sellrain Valley in Austria, near Innsbruck, has it all.

Many people come to ski, but not us, oh no. Our primary goal? Ice climbing!
And most of that we did on the Bafflefall, near Gries im Sellrain.

Bafflfall overview


Bafflfall routes


The big fall, center-right, is an easy WI 3. Only the lower half, about 60 m, is visible. On the right hand side it's WI 2, on the left just a little bit harder.
The steepest section, which makes it a WI 3, is just above the visible part. With a 70m rope, the whole route can be climbed in two pitches. With a 60 m rope, it's a stretch. We needed three.

To the left is a small, short WI 4, about 20-25 m.

And further to the left, not visible behind the trees, is an even shorter WI 5, about 15 m.

Voted 10/10

I've done some icefalls at the end of the valley near Luesens, but not this one. When were the pictures taken, just recently?

And great it was!

The pictures are all taken early Februari 2009. Two of them are actually from the Gasthausfall, which is very close to Lüsens. We climbed a bit there too. It's the ones with the captions 'Gasthausfall' and 'Can't you just walk?'. I've also added coordinates to almost all of the pictures here, to help people finding them.

If you weren't at the Gasthausfall, perhaps it was at the Hängende Garten, but we didn't even go there, that's way beyond me! I didn't get any good pictures of that one though. In fact, I didn't take a lot of pictures at all, too busy climbing!
