Get directions to here using Google Maps.
Leave your car on the big gravel place in front of the fire brigade of Wildhaus. From there follow the hiking trail in direction Fürentobel, Teselalp, Chreialp and Zwinglipass. After a distance of 5km and an ascent of 700m you will reach the Chreialp. From there you already see the wall. Head west without a trail to reach the start of the route.
Where to stay
Ethic inherited from Alpstein
Sport climbs are very well protected but the historic multi pitch routes are sometime strange bolted and you have to take long run outs. Generally it is a good advice to bring some gear to improve protection where necessary.
New routes should be discussed with local authorities and the Swiss Alpine Club (SAC) before hand. Especially if routes may distract animals and destroy vegetation.
