Located in the mountains near Galtür and at a height of 2.000 m, this is one of the best bouldering spots not just in Tirol. Most of the development has been done by the local „Sportklettergruppe Arlberg“ (sports climbing club Arlberg). Bernd Zangerl made this area well known with his hard creations. But there is a lot more to the Silvapark than just hard problems. There are great lines of all difficulties, and a few years ago, a special sector was created for moderate bouldering. In this „Parkours-Sektor“ you find circuits with many easy boulders for kids and beginners with good landings. The boulders are marked with different colours. At the gondola you can even borrow crash pads and deck chairs (but please take them back after use!).
Freestanding boulders with a lot of sharp edges. The rock dries quickly after rain. You can boulder here perfectly when a little breeze is going.
Toilets: Please use the facilites in Galtür or at the Bergstation Birkhahnbahn. Do NOT shit behind the boulders.
1. Bergstation Birkhahnbahn. Park in Galtür and take the gondola into the bouldering area (15 minutes). Day ticket: 4,– Euros; summer pass: 40,– Euros. 2. Follow Silvretta Hochalpenstraße in the direction of the Silvretta-Stausee. 1,5 km after passing the Talstation (base station) of the „Birkhahnbahn“ turn right in Wirl in the direction of the Kops-Stausee. After another 2 km turn left on a mountain road. Follow this small road for 1 km, which gets you to the Ballunspitzbahn Talstation and the parking. 15 minutes of walking will get you to the first sector and 30–40 minutes to the upper sectors.
From the S 16 Arlbergschnellstraße turn off at exit Pians and follow the Silvretta Bundesstraße (B 188) to Galtür.
There are three ways to get to the S 16 in Tirol:

In summer you can leave the motorway in Bludenz and follow Silvretta Hochalpenstraße to Galtür:

But the Silvretta Hochalpenstraße is only open from June to November!
