Braunwald (plaisir)

Ostschweiz,

The South Face of the Vorder Eggstock is not exactly Verdon quality, however, those who follow the bolted lines and stay on route will find good solid Canton Glarus limestone. “Sambolero” is really quite challenging and recommended for the capable few. After the 3rd pitch retreat is no longer possible. Rappel down “Söt mügli si” (“Should Be Possible”) only in an emergency. When parties are climbing below, it is extremely dangerous due to rock fall. The best descent is the walk off down the Via Ferrata. Nothing to complain about the climbing crag: Solid, grippy rock with excellent protection. Have fun!
