1980’s sportclimber paradise high above Zwischenflüh

The Abendberg is one of the oldest extreme climbing areas throughout the Bernese Oberland. With a large choice of about 100 routes it was very popular on the beginning of his exploitation during the 1980’s and ‘90’s. The large amount of routes shows the interest drawn to the Abendberg which is divided in many pillars and walls. The rock is a very beautiful limestone with water shaped pockets and crimps, for friends loving precise foot skills. Not the kind of climbing which is preferred today. That’s why only a few routes became classics. All other routes are rather rarely climbed. The equipment on the classic routes has been restored, in all other routes old equipment is on place. Caution should be exercised at any top out of the routes because it has quite a few loose stones on the ledges, therefore, a climbing helmet is highly recommended to wear. As the beginning of the routes can only be reached by rappelling the crag is also called the Verdon of the Bernese Oberland.
