Towering above the small village of Innertkirchen in the Bernese Oberland, the Engelhoerner are a group of bizarre, jagged limestone peaks. Included in the group is the gigantic Kingspitz, which is known for its very long, very alpine routes. A number of the surrounding peaks offer some of the best long alpine sport routes that Switzerland has to offer.
On the saddle between Meiringen and Innertkirchen, take the turn-off (right by the one and only gas station) for Rosenlaui. Follow the road up the valley until Gschwantenmad.

Naebel und Chempae 6a 5.10a International : Europe : ... : Engelhoerner
An amazing sport climb with a distinctly alpine feel. Very interesting for the grade, and remarkably homogeneous in its entirety. Particularly in the upper half of the route, it is one stellar pitch after another. To boot, there's a proper top-out with incredible views in all directions. If the grade suits, and you have one day at the Engelhoerner, this is the route to go for.Pitches go at 5a, 5b, 6a, 5c+, 3a, 4c, 5c+, 6a, 5c, 6a, 5c+, 6a....[more] Browse More Classics in International
