Another Play in Paradise (7c, Lienz Dolomites)

EDITORIAL

Monday, 9 May

Advertorial: Another Play in Paradise is a spicy route, one of 129 that traverse the south-facing slopes of the Lienz Dolomites in 5 sectors ranging in difficulty from 5 to 8. This pitch graded 7c in sector A, otherwise known as “Paradies”, offers wonderfully consistent climbing, on a face that becomes more exposed and technically demanding the closer you get to the top. Mid-route, an easier segment offers climbers a moment to gather reserves, before heading on to tackle the upper section.

Due to its high altitude at 1600 metres above sea level, there may be residual snow until late spring, but is generally accessible from April until October. The climb is well secured and offers a magnificent panorama. It is located below the eponymous Dolomite Hut, a great hiking and climbing destination, as well as the starting point of wonderful trails to Karlsbad Hut or Lake Laserz in the municipality of Tristach, an idyllic holiday destination near Lienz, the capital of East Tyrol. More info and a Video.
