Crag features

During the summer there is fantastic sports climbing on the south side of the valley; all recently bolted with abseil points as well. The rock is superb limestone, slabby but with friction, unlike the mostly polished and over-climbed rock we have in the UK! There are many water-flutings on the crag which are a pleasure to climb. The aspect is South East facing so gets the sun most of the day.

When the temperature drops a steep crag on the north side becomes one of Europe's premier bolted mixed venues. I don't currently have a topo of these and can't find one on the internet anywhere. If you have one can you please let me know. A recent guidebook has been published (called Hot Ice Cold Rock)and is available from Cordee or at http://www.peglers.co.uk/2_Hot-Ice-Cold-Rock.htm

The views in this region are outstanding.

Approach notes

The best access is by car from Kandersteg but there is a toll for the road of 10 Swiss Francs. This gets you to a car park about 20 mins walk from the crag in the summer. With snow the walk up to the valley becomes a bit more arduous and ski touring is the best option.
