Bollenwees (plaisir)

Ostschweiz,

Once you have finally groveled to the top of the frightfully steep and seemingly endless “Brüel-tobel” one is rewarded with the last few steps to the first Berggasthaus (Mountain Hostel) tucked into the alpine meadows with great valley views. This idyllic hiking region sits near Fählensee at the base of the Widderalpstöck. The whole area has benefitted greatly from a region-wide retrofitting program in the past few years. Safe and well protected routes have been the result and this has reawakened interest for climbing here. The rock quality is consistently excellent, but the many pines are hardly a concern except when you rappel (risk of rope snag). Because of the longer approach, an extended stay is so worth it with the nice accommodation options.
