Summary

Nice south oriented crag, too warm in summer but perfect in spring and fall. Also suitable in winter (warm).

Description

The crag is south oriented, above the tree line, therefore very warm. It is not suitable for hot summer days but perfect for spring and fall. It's also a good crag for winter as it sees the sun all day long.

Approach

Two main access:

  1. from Einsiedeln, drive to Brunni, the end of the valley. From there, either take the cable car to the Holzegg pass, or walk up along the well marked trail (45 min, 300m)

  2. From Schwyz, drive to Rickenbach, then take the cable car to Rotenflue. Then walk 15min to the Holzegg pass.

From Holzegg pass, walk 3 min toward the Gross Mythen, then you should see a light path going direction the forest. From there, walk 5 min to the crag.
