Schlossberg via south face

Schlossberg south wall

On the trail of the Bigwall

The Schlossberg in Engelberg is known above all for its mighty west wall. But also the somewhat forgotten route through the south wall presents the best rock in an alpine ambience.
A lot of variety and climbing pleasure in the fourth degree of difficulty, which can also be done in one day for alpinists with good physical condition.
