"Puls 2000"

163 routes, 11 sections and compact, grey limestone – those are the key facts about the Chinesische Mauer (Wall of China) in Leutasch. It takes around 20 minutes to get from the car park to the south-facing rockface, where there is climbing to be had all year around (though things can get a bit cold in winter if the sun is not shining). The most interesting routes are rated at least 7 on the Austrian difficulty scale, making them suitable for advanced and expert climbers only. "Puls 2000" (first climbed in 1992 by Zak/Walch) in the section "Dodlwand" is the most well-known route in the area. It is characterised by small fingerholes and reverse holds which require strength and endurance from bottom to top.

Parking

Travel via Garmisch / Kochel to Mittenwald. At the southern end of the town there is a small road leading up to Leutasch. After a few tight corners the valley beomes wider and after passing the hamlet of Reindlau you will reach Puitbach, where there is a car park to the east of the road. Arriving from the south, travel via Zirler Berg and Seefeld to Leutasch or, alternatively, from Telfs via Buchen to Leutasch and then on to Puitbach.

Approach

From the car park, change onto the other side of the road, walk past a few houses and then follow a dirt road as far as the edge of the forest. Enter the forest and. after a few metres, the dirt road splits. Take the left-hand track, which leads down into a small basin. From here there is a trail leading left up to the rockface.
