Originally a stronghold of the Munich and Kufstein climbing schools, alpine history was written in the Wilder Kaiser. For 100 years the sport of climbing has developed on rocks like Totenkirchl, Fleischbank and Predigtstuhl.
It was here where Hans Dülfer created new climbing styles and techniques, Helmut Kien and Reinhard Karl opened the first route rated VIIº with Pumprisse, and it was on Fleischbank where Stefan Glowacz climbed “des Kaisers neue Kleider” (X+) the most difficult route up to now.
