Bouldering is an ideal sport for all the family. In Pitztal Valley there are courses for children as young as five years where they and their parents can learn how to have fun and stay safe.
"Mandlers Boden" is a quiet area of forest above the hamlet of Ritzenried in the Pitztal Valley – and a paradise for bouldering enthusiasts. All in all there are 55 large rocks with around 176 different climbing routes, many of which are relatively easy. Little wonder, then, that this boulder garden is particularly popular with families and beginners. "Das tapfere Schneiderlein", "Rumpelstilzchen" and "Jogibär" are all between 1.50 and 2.20 metres high, though more experienced climbers will also find more challenging boulders up to 4 metres in height. Bouldering is an increasingly popular sport which involves climbing without a rope and safety harness just a few metres off the ground. Taster courses are offered by local climbing experts in the Pitztal Valley, which is also home to other rock climbing areas such as "Pitzis Kletterfelsen" in Jerzens, the "Kletterpark Gletscherstube" and "Richi‘s Wall"?
