Gross Schijen - Lutersee (plaisir)

Ostschweiz,

The traverse of the «Chly Schijen», «Learning By Doing» is an entry level tour to hone gear placement skills. The straight forward South Ridge is a worthwhile mountain climb on quality, coarse, and grippy gneiss. The short wonderful climbing on the eastern part of «Goldkuste» was significantly extended between 2003 and 2005 by Toni Bischof and Gabriel Degonda. The two also put up about 40 routes in the «Luterseeplatten» sector. Very early season climbing is often possible on balmy winter days and with the ski lifts open until Easter, the approaches are a breeze. The nearby Via Ferrata «Diavolo» is forbidding in name only as it is easy to negotiate and very well protected. It is great for young and old alike.
