Climbing in best Schrattenkalk (limestone).


The Schafbergwand is an impressive cliff above Wildhaus. It provides mostly multi pitch climbs in incredible limestone with water runnels and holes.


Park on the big place in front of the fire brigade in Wildhaus and follow the hiking trail to Gamplüt. From there follow the road into direction of the Zwinglipass. Before the road descants again head left into the trees and follow small paths to the bottom of the cliff.

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.
