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.

Approach notes

Take the cable car from Kandersteg to 1682m then it's a 50 min walk to the crag - ascend through trees past the top of the Rodelbahn.

The descent is much longer than guide says and the path is not in great shape, especially the top section - more like 2 hours and quite tricky.
