Hazard notes

Sliding / jumping

In the following topos all spots are marked on which sliding or jumping is possible at ideal conditions. As those activities both bear a high risk of injuries every canyoneer has to check the lower pool in respect of suitable depth and clearance of obstacles upfront.

Water intake, risk of flash flood

In Tyrol, with its high potential of hydro power, ongoing new small and big hydro power plants, as well as general water intakes for irrigation and water supply will be built. The authors don‘t know all constructions, due to this every canyoneer has to check the actual building development and evaluate the resulting risk doing canyoning upfront. If there are temporally erected warning sign plates (i.e. Auerklamm ÖP 14 – 16), you have to respect the given information. Information is provided at the relevant municipalities.

 

Belaying points

In the trip descriptions the quality of the belaying points were assessed in three categories. Due to several environmental influences (thunderstorms, rock fall, snow pressure…) or mechanic weariness (corrosion, over-loading…) the given assessment can be changed. Therefore each belaying point has to be checked and if necessary improved before any use. It is recommended to have a manual drilling device with you.

 

Regimentation

A lot of areas in Tyrol are protected by special nature protection laws, generally the right of way is given. Beside this you have to comply with singular regulations, particularly private property has to be respected. Therefor the access to parking areas as well as approach and exit paths can be different. Local prohibition- and information signs must be attended.

 

SOS emergency equipment

In Tyrol a particular and well trained mountain rescue team is available. Depending on the situation (weather, access…) you can’t always expect fast external help. All canyoneers have to take an adapted emergency equipment with them, to supply first aid yourself and take emergency steps.
