Description

The Ueschenen valley lies above Kandersteg and has a couple long cliffbands of Limestone mostly around 200m+ in height as well as some single pitch routes. Classic beautiful Swiss alps!

Guidebooks: Plasir West, Extreme West, SAC Kletterfuhrer Berner Oberland

Getting There

Drive to Kandersteg (from the north) and continue south past town (there's only one road) and the cable car to a T intersection. Go right to get on Ueschenenstrasse which switchbacks up into the valley. You also need to pay a toll to get on Ueschenenstrasse - about 8CHF I think. Once in the valley there are several small parking spots - if you park near a farmhouse try to make sure the residents are OK with it. They generally are.

Approaches can be 15min-40min depending on the route and exactly where you park.
