Chli Glatten Rock Climbing
View to the east in the Flacher Pfeiler route
South facing wall accessed from just below the top of the Klausenpass. Gets lots of sun, periodically some impressive updrafts, and, as elsewhere on the Klausenpass, sometimes gets socked in with fog.
Draws healthy crowds on weekends, but spreads them out with its extensive itinerary of routes.
The rock is limestone, of unique character (often blocky and layered like shingles). Generally more solid than it may appear at first glance.
Park at the large parking lot vis-a-vis the Hotel Klausenpass just below the top of the pass on the western side. Follow the path that takes off behind the hotel.
Approach is around 45 minutes.
Climbing Season For the Switzerland area.
Weather station 11.6 miles from here
