Description

The south face of the Altmann.

Approach

From Wildhaus via Zwinglipass in 2.5 to 3 hours.

Descent notes

The main route via the Altmannsattel.

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.
