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

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
