Crag features

Bire (2502m) is the obvoius and good looking pear shaped (the name comes from Birne - German for Pear) peak above Kandersteg and contains a couple of mountaineering style bolted routes on it's south east flank.

Approach notes

Cable car from Kandersteg to 1682m then 50 min walk to crag - ascend through trees past the top of the Rodelbahn.
Descent much longer than guide says and the path is not in great shape, especially the top section - more like 2 hours and quite tricky.
