Gross Spannort

Gross Spannort 3198

The famous rock needles over Engelberg

After a cosy night in the Spannorthütte, you will climb steeply up into the Schlossberglücke. Roped up and equipped with crampons you hike over the glacier to the climbing entrance. The third degree of difficulty is to climb over easy steep steps to the summit.
The view of Engelberg is only better from a paraglider…
