The Innsbruck Climbing Center (KI) is one of the largest and most modern sport climbing facilities worldwide. The climbing centre is unique because the Austrian Climbing Association’s National Competence Centre (BLZ) for competition climbers has been integrated into the facility. This makes the KI a centre of excellence for climbing and a magnet for professional and recreational climbers alike. The KI is also competition approved and was one of the venues for the Climbing World Championships in Innsbruck.
