Description

A popular area for hikers, mountain bikers, and base jumpers.

Mountaineering, alpine climbing, and hard multipitch sport all here.

See Gipfelbuch for some idea fo the range of climbing here.

Getting There

from Interlaken, take bus 5 to Wilderswil, and then hop a train to Lauterbrunnen. There is one quite lovely trail that takes you above the falls to Muren, and another even further to Gimmelwald. if you want to climb near or past Muren, there is a gondola that takes you there, and another one to Gimmelwald.

There is a hostel in Lauterbrunnen.

beautiful location and waterfall. the rock walls here are very impressive and I'm sure there has to be more routes in the area.

our canyoneering guide mentioned a few climbs and at the top of the Schilthorn cable car there are supposedly a bunch of bolted sport routes down a little ways from the top of the peak. I saw a outdoor adventure type pamphlet in Murren that described it along with the via feratta from murren to gimmelwald. Sep 21, 2012

John Harlins Die Alpen/Eiger 1/5 YouTube shows one wild route next to Staubbach Falls. Slide to the end of the clip to see the hanging belay perched at the lip of a 200 ft summit roof that caps a 1,000 ft wall. The Imax movie shows enough to entice one to rap in from the top and just do the last pitch.
