Huge Mountain Clefts
During the last Ice Age the entire Ötztal was covered by a huge glacier. Later when the glaciers retreated and melted, the rock walls lost their counter pressure - resulting in truly gigantic rockslides. In some places there were also deep fissures in the mountains.
These jagged crevices, partly bridged by clamping bolts, still amaze hikers and bikers: they can be about 50hm long, 30hm deep and up to 3 hm in wide.....dangerous crevices that are very well secured by larch fences now and can be easily admired thanks to two footbridges. Similar to Kanzel area, there are also varied hiking trails. The easiest way to reach the Kluft area is from a turnoff on Piburger's federal road.
