Climbing routes in the Silvretta Arena
Flimspitz and Greitspitz - short but taxing climbing routes at almost 3,000 metres altitude
You will be rewarded with stunning panoramic views of the Silvretta, Bernina area, Ortles, Oetz and Pitztal Alps, Zugspitze, Verwallgruppe, Säntis, Churfirsten, Tödi area as well as the Uri and Grisons Alps.
The climbing routes do not require much experience, but you do need the right equipment. An experienced mountain guide is highly recommended, especially for beginners.
The climbing route on the Flimspitze leads to the highest peak in the Silvretta Arena and follows the border between Switzerland and Austria directly to the summit cross. The route covers 120 altitude meters and a total length of 200 metres. The descent can be combined with the wonderful hike "to the lakes".
The level of difficulty of the climbing route to the Greitspitze is mostly B (moderate to demanding) and it covers an altitude difference of 150 metres. Secured with steel ropes and plenty of grips and stirrups, this climbing route is not recommended for beginners without a guide and should be climbed in a rope team if possible. You descend along a wide path to the Flimjoch cable car.
