Insanely steep mixed climbing drytooling and multipitch ice waterfalls.

Many options for ice in the area, here just describing the lower elevation mixed and dry climbs.

Getting There 

Kandersteg is south of Interlaken, and the town is directly served by train via Bern. From the train station, getting to Ueschenen is accessible by short bus ride (only one bus) uphill to a small ski lift. Do not take the lift up, but walk across the parking lot north to reach a small trailhead.
The trail zig zags up shortly, then follows a valley going gently uphill to the west. The drytooling spot is about an hour+ hike by snowshoeing or skiing.

Hi, Does anybody have info on climbing routes (sport, multipitch, or easy alpine) accessible from Kandersteg without a car (public transport only)? And, can gear be rented in town or nearby (I have my own gear but was hoping to not travel with it for 2-3 days of climbing between June 6-15, 2014). My wife and I climb as a team so we don't need to hire a guide. Generally looking for routes under 5.9/5c for multipitch/alpine stuff.
