Getting weather forecast...
DescriptionPerched above the Rosenlaui Glacier, the Wellhorn offers spectacular sport-aineering on high quality limestone. The wall faces southeast, and catches sun for most of the day. Being that most of the routes range from 15-25 pitches, expect a full day out with a long rappel descent.
Getting ThereFrom Meiringen, drive toward Innertkirchen. Immediately after the lone gas station between the two towns, turn right on Scheideggstrasse toward Rosenlaui. After a few minutes of driving, you will come across a kiosk where you can pay the 8 CHF tax for parking. Continue along the winding road up to the Rosenlaui Hotel. Shortly past the hotel, park in a large gravel lot on the left that serves the small restaurant, and where you can pay to walk behind the waterfall.
From the trailhead, follow the wide trail toward the Engelhorn-hütte. After 15 minutes of hiking, the trail will cross the gorge via a bridge with a gate. Instead of crossing the bridge, follow a trail to the right that will lead to a yellow sign that says, Stop. From here, scramble up past the fixed rope and pick up a trail on the left. This trail will take you all the way to the Rosenlaui Glacier. There are a few options for bivying along the way, but dont expect to stay dry.
