History

The Peterlewand in St. Urban is a gem, hidden behind the trees. During the time of the counter-reformation, the Peterlewand was a strategically important point. The first routes were set up in 1988 by a student from Bodensdorf. Over the years the climbing garden had been neglected, before it was completely taken out of all climbing guides. In the spring of 2015, the Peterlewand was opened again. The existing sport climbing routes of the Peterlewand were renovated and new interesting routes set up. The climbing routes were made for beginners and advanced climbers.

Wall character

The Peterlewand is a long-drawn-out wall-wall of solid ancient rock, is orientated to the east and about 8 to 35 meters high. In some places the wall is overhanging. During climbing you can enjoy the wonderful view over lake Ossiacher See. A few wall areas are vertical or slightly inclined. Via ferrata: Three variations, two in for the skill level A / B and a more difficult one with a key part in skill level C / D (difficult to very difficult). Sport climbing: there are around 30 routes from difficulty 4+ to 7a.
