An Ibex came up from the base and followed us. Ma...


20+ climbs up to 8 pitches, all bolted plaisir style. Climbing is slab / face with features on hard gneiss. (sounds like "nice" for a reason)

Getting There 

Park at the next big switchback 1 km up the road from Alpin Center Sustenpass. Take a trail due north 20 minutes to the base.

5 pitches of slab and face climbing on grippy gneiss. Belay stations were comfortable enough for 4 people (though belay #4 was tight). Pitches vary from 35-45 meters. The crux is at the beginning of pitch 3. Pitch 5 is steep but feature rich, short, and fairly easy. (rated 4c/5.6, but seemed easier)Rap off (2x 50m or 2x 60m)There are 2 dozen sister climbs on this same cliff. For more information I highly recommend the Filidor Plaisir Ost climbing guidebook....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
