A few warnings about hiking and climbing
Niederöblarn is located in a very nice valley - named 'Ennstal' - surrounded from a large number of fairly high mountains. There are a lot of opportunities for hiking, bike rides and climbs. Please be aware that many hikes lead over quite exposed trails - in some cases rope protection is highly advised. Even the 'normal routes' to e.g. Grimming and Dachstein lead over such exposed trails. Furthermore there is usually no water available during such hikes - you have to take it with you (and you need more than you might expect !). Please be aware that you enter an alpine environment leading to heights up to 3000 Meter (9,000 ft) above sea level - appropriate experience and equipment is needed !
Everybody is strongly advised to collect the appropriate information from people familiar with this area; furthermore colleagues should be informed about the planned activity as an additional security service. The organizers cannot be held responsible for any accident during such an activity - any responsibility will be rejected.
The Club-Sportunion offers a lot of sports activities - appropriate clothing is strongly recommended. There is also an indoor climbing wall - its use is only possible AFTER registering at the reception desk and verifying by signature the knowledge of belaying techniques.
