Fliehende Stürme

First ascent: Urs Odermatt, Cristoph Schraub 12/1998
By: Urs Odermatt, UIAA Mountain Guide
Area: Swiss Alps, Group: Brunnital, Country: Switzerland, Region: Uri

One of the best icefalls in Switzerland. The three pitches are delicate, intricate and exposed, but nevertheless offer good protection.

GETTING THERE

Reach Unterschächen in Switzerland. This can be reached easily by public transport. Take the train to Flüelen, then continue by Posttrain to Unterschächen. Reaching Brunnital by car saves not much more then 15 minutes on the walk-in. For those interested in the climbing the Ruchen North Face, get a permit to drive up to Brunnialp from the restaurant at the fork in the road.

ACCESS

From Unterschächen head into the Brunnital and park on the left. Continue on foot towards Brunnialp to reach the base of the routes, located on the west side (left) of the valley. Walk-in times vary depending on the route, from 15 minutes to 1 hour.

DESCENT

Abseil down the route.

GEAR

Full ice climbing rack.

NOTES

Warning: many starts are exposed to falling ice. During the main season in February the routes receive massive amounts of sun and can therefore become, objectively speaking, extremely dangerous. Despite the vicinity to the road, considerable alpine experience is necessary to correctly judge the conditions.
