Bielenhörner (plaisir)

Ostschweiz,

The west wall of the Gross Bielenhorn has some of the most beautiful routes in the Furka. The routes are challenging and often require supplemental gear placements. This holds true for the routes included here. Less intense is the wonderful SE Ridge to the summit of the Gross Bielenhorn - incredible climbing and amazing views guarantee an unforgettable day of climbing. The “Schildkrotengrat“ (Turtle Ridge) is an exciting beginner climb. Looking to the North from the summit, you can see the “Strahlengrat”, a kilometer away. Approach either via the Sidelen Hut by way of the Untere Bielenlucke or from the Albert Heim Hut. The climbs on the south face of the Chli Bielenhorn are mostly for hard core climbers (see extrem Ost). The classic “Perrenoud” follows the wall’s weaknesses and is climbed fairly frequently. The route “RORU” put up by Heinz Muller and Robi Ruckstuhl is long and varied. Bring along a trad rack to supplement the fixed protection. The crowning tick of any Sidelen trip is a climb of the Klein Kamel (Little Camel).
