“Recently, climbers destroyed fixtures in the bath room facilities at the parking spot Silvapark Galtür. The "Bergbahnen Galtür" provides parking spaces, waste buckets, toilets and washing rooms. They also put up a fountain for us! It took years of discussions with the authorities to get the permission to drive up there and, I think, we’ve finally reached an amazing agreement.

Right now, we are allowed to camp for FREE, but if there are more problems in future, this permit will be revoked. I was informed by "Bergbahnen Galtür" that many campers leave their tents during the day, making it impossible for cars to park. I am happy that they still give us the opportunity to solve our problems, so that bouldering at Silvapark remains a comfortable experience for everybody. So, please keep the place clean and think about other climbers when putting up your tent up there!”

A similar story happened near Arco. The generosity and hospitality of a local farmer got abused by a loud group of people that did not respect the unwritten rules to leave the free camping spot in the morning, clean up the trash and tents and come back in the evening. Guess what? Now there is a gate. And you would assume climbers have a huge respect for nature. ... Well, sadly not all of them.
