Although East Tyrol (in Austria) is only a district of Tyrol and not a federal state, the differences between this smaller area and its neighbours North Tyrol and South Tyrol are pretty big. The chalky Carnic Alps, the Lienzer Dolomiten in the South and the 3000m+ peaks in the Hohe Tauern, with its green schist and gneissic faces, are significantly less frequently visited by climbers and mountaineers.

Only the highest peaks in those areas see a lot of ascents. Reasons for this may include bad accessibility or simply the absence of an eminent face. What is sure though, is that a lot of foreign climbers miss out on the East Tyrolean climbing gems. The aim of this climbing guide is to provide an overview of all multipitches from Laserzkessel above Lienz, up to the steep, green schist faces of the Virgen Valley. It also covers most of the crags in East Tyrol from the Dolomiten-Hut all the way to Falkenstein and the surrounding regions.

There is a lot of hard bolted climbing, much of it multipitch, quite a bit of easier sport climbing, some trad, and a little more alpine stuff. Also included are 17 via ferratas, though note that many of not all of thee you will need to pay for.

Well illustrated with photo diagrams, diagrams, maps and action shots, though annoyingly there is no overview map of the region.
