ALGUND BOULDERING AREA | TRENTINO ALTO ADIGE

algund

Algund is located just west of Merano and sits in the "Apple Orhirds" that fill the valley at the base of the Austria and Italy boulder. My first visit here 8 years ago was to the upper sectors Elettra and Dragonball, the only developed area at the time. I was greatly disappointed with the quality of size of the boulders, many of the "problems" were on small rocks, almost waist high, this was my first experience in the Italian idea. of a sit start.

However. I made a return visit and was surprised to find several good problems lower down in the valley. There are several good boulders to work on,and the setting is idea, to escape the heat during late spring and early fall. You can boulder in the winter if the snowfall is not too heavy. I like this area because I can ski at Val di Senales during the morning and then stop to do a few routes on the way home.

REMEMBER TO SUPPORT THE LOCAL CLIMBERS AND BUY A GUIDE BOOK!
RESPECT THE AREA, DO NOT LITTER, CHIP THE ROCK, OR BE RUDE AND LOUD!
