Climbs 3 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 2000m a.s.l – Faces SE

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.

Access 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.
