Home to a couple of the Grimsel classics is a large, west-facing wall below the Raterichsbodensee.
It gets sun primarily in the afternoon. With its short approach and limited itinerary, one is rarely alone.
The rock is fairly typical for the Grimsel region (i.e., smooth granite), but the two classic routes here, Sagittarius and Chopper, also offer some nice crack and corner climbing.
Park at the large parking space at the Chuenzentennlen bus stop. Follow the clear trail up towards the wall.
