The unforgettable layback crack on pitch three of ...


Slabby to steep granite walls in an alpine setting... great except for the roaring highway below, full of motorcycles zipping down from the Gotthard pass. Upside is the highway makes for just about the shortest approach of any alpine area.

Tuefelstalwand apparently has a much more remote character, see the area description.

Getting There 

From Göschenen, drive 2.5 km up the Gotthard pass road. There is a curve in the road with a parking spot -- see the Plaisir West for exact map (or the GPS location here). Don't miss the parking, or you'll go all the way up!
