Climbing eldorado above Kandersteg

This huge wall of limestone extending over kilometres is an appreciated climbing area since many years. The first routes have been opened in hard boots and at a time aid climbing was at his peak in the 1970’s. With the arrival of the first climbing shoes more and more routes has been bolted and attract now many visitors. But don’t fear the masses, the crag offers enough routes, so the routes will not too busy. The routes are most on a slab with some steeper parts. Descent is by abseil back down the wall. For most of the routes there is a central abseil track. It is well understood that all the climbers will get stuck here so count with some waiting time. Check the routes on the Filidor pilar they are awesome.  Ueschenen is the most important climbing crag around Kandersteg with 100 routes in moderate climbs mostly in 6a-6c on the sunny side of the valley with a beautiful view!
