The Cirque of the Blaueis-Glacier - A Climber's Paradise
The remains of the Blaueis-Glacier are surrounded by an enormous amount of rock faces with solid limestone.
Everybody will find a route or activity that will make him happy: well-bolted sportsclimbing close to the hut, bolted multi-pitch climbing at all grads or trad-climbing. In addition, the hut is the perfect base for boulderers as it is surrounded by a uncountable numbers of blocks.
Schärtenspitze - West Face (IV - VII)
Bolted mulit-pitch climbs with moderate difficulties on perfect limestone! Additional plus, the shortest approach of all climbs in the Blaueiskar!
Rotpalfen East Face - "Requiem" 280 m / 8 pitches / VI (trad)
Fantastic wall and crack climbing!
However, this route is reserved for the fans of natural protection: only a couple of bolts exist at the belays.
Several, rather steep routes can be found at the very end of the Blaueiskar.
All of them are worth the approach, especially the “Asterix” (385 m, VI+) and “Weg der Methusalixe” (300 m, VII-).
The "Blaueishütte" - the perfect basecamp for rock climbers
All routes, climbing crags and boulders are easily accessible from the well-guarded hut “Blaueishütte”.
Approach: The approach starts at the public parking at the lake “Hintersee”. Follow a fairly steep forest road for about 2 hours until you reach the building of the ropeway for material support. The road turns into a trail, and in about 30 to 45 minutes you reach the hut (in total 850 m in elevation)
It’s not only the alpine climber, but also the boulderer who loves to come up to the Blaueiskar!
