Description

Mostly less than vertical.
Overall facing NNW.

Top-Roping: Simplest way to access the top of this sector is to scramble up Left around the East send of the crag, then diagonal down right (West) to somewhere near the top of the desired climbing route.

Another way to access the top of a route in Handegg sector might to use instructions on the Description page for Gerstenegg sector , but then traverse East along the top farther.

warning: The rock in this sector has not been climbed much yet, and much of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber.

name: Just as we recognize the June Lake Loop as a little visit to Switzerland, so we see the rock of Rush as a taste of Swiss granite.
"Handegg" is a lower altitude climbing area in the famous Grimsel valley granite region in the center of Switzerland. Known for slab routes.

Getting There

Follow the instructions on the Grimsel area description page to reach sector 2 Gerstenegg. Turn Left and hike E about 50 feet.
. (17-33 minutes approach via Log bridge)
. (12-21 minutes via Wading the creek)
