Almost 150 easy and hard routes are available now in Central Switzerland’s most popular climbing crag. This is all thanks to the hard work of Niklaus Kretz and Hans Ettlin from Kerns. The horizontally banded rock is as if made for climbing. The unquestionable bolted protection instills confidence even in the most cautious beginning leaders. Melchsee-Frutt is the perfect getaway for the whole family: hiking, biking, fishing, and even the “Fruttli” Via Ferrata will assure everybody has a great time. A 50m or 60m rope is usually long enough for all of the routes. A few require a 70m or 2 x 50m double ropes (be aware of the rope lengths required!). The protection is otherwise excellent and 12 quickdraws (QDs) are enough for everything.
