Climbs 100 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 1548m a.s.l – Faces SE

Crag features
Wissenfluh is a triangular shaped crag of limestone rising above the trees in an area of alpine pasture land above Thun. The crag catches a lot of sun and has a fantastic outlook onto Thunersee and the Peaks of the Bernese Oberland. The base of the crag is shaded nicely by the forrest.

Rock is a generally very good quality limestone with the odd loose block and features a lot of positive holds and water worn features.

There are approx 100 routes from 5a upwards, with the majority of routes being in the 6a-c range. The routes to either side of the crag tend to be single pitches, with 2-3 pitch routes in the centre.

Approach notes
To access Wissenfluh, take the toll road (10CHF) from the centre of Ruttigen (next to the Bank) up the hillside. The road is quite steep gravel with several switchbacks. After Lengenberg farm park at the 3rd switchback, there is plenty of space on the inside of the bend to park. Do not park near the water trough (so that the cows can reach it). The crag is 15-20 minutes walk away on a clear trail leaving the road next to the water trough.
