Crag features

Probably Switzerland's most important crag. Miles of cliff up to 1000m high, mostly very solid. Bolted but sparsely, so friends and rocks are essential. The easiest routes start at about F6b, and that is "obligatory"

Approach notes

Park at Wendenalp, and then either bivvy / inconspicuous tent / sleep in car here, or take the two hour trip with food and sleeping bag to bivvy at the crag. A difficult decision. The routes are all long, there are often thunderstorms in the afternoon, and both the crag and walking descent are lethal during rain.
