Tall and interesting ice falls in the canton of St. Gallen. Many options for creative ascents, with opportunities to link ice sections via mixed terrain.

Getting There 

Bus service from Sargans to the town of Wiesstannen... but you need to tell the bus driver you want to get off at the ice, as the stop noted in the guidebook no longer exists. Parking spots for about 10 cars in the area.
