Feldschijen, as seen from the damn at Goescheneral...

Description 

Exceptional alpine climbing that sees a lot less traffic than other areas in the valley - due in part to the solid approach, limited itinerary and exposition combined with altitude (north / west facing - a venue for very warm summer days)

Getting There 

Cross the damn at Goescheneralp and follow the trail along the reservoir to the blue/white trailhead for the Lochbergluecke. Ascend here (heading south), picking up a lot of elevation, then over to the base of the rock. Plan on 90-120 minutes in total for the approach.

Featured Route For Feldschijen
Signature pitches two and three of the route, following the pronounced crack line up the middle of the headwall

Sännetuntschi 5.11b 6c 23 VIII- 23 E3 5c  Europe : Switzerland : ... : Feldschijen
Ignoring the intro pitch to access the headwall, an extraordinary, steep alpine route from start to finish, linking a series of stellar and varied cracks in a very logical line.Never a dull moment. Perfect rock from start to finish.Grades go at 4c, 6c+, 6b+, 6a+, 6b, 6a+, 5b, 6b, 5c - although the pure crack pitches (pitches 2, 3 and 8) will probably seem soft for those who are proficient in jamming.For a complete topo, refer to the filidor guidebook "Schweiz Extrem Ost"....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
