Drive out of Meiringen and through Hausen and then uphill. Park on a corner next to the entrance to the teepee encampment. Walk along the track, past a smallholding and across the railway. Turn right and head down the way for about 15 minutes, crossign a stream and passing a small crag on the left. Beretli is to be found stretching out on the left of the track just after a sharp left hand bend.
If climbing on the upper section it is a diffcult and muddy scramble up but is equipped with a knotted rope hand rail.
The crag is sometimes used by local teaching groups.
