Brunnital, ice climbing in Switzerland

11.01.2010 by Urs Odermatt

Swiss Mountain Guide Urs Odermatt introduces the Brunnital, one of the most important ice climbing venues in Switzerland.

The Brunnital counts as one of the best ice climbing areas in the entire Alps. The incredible selection of long, demanding routes is pretty much unparalleled and can only be beaten in Switzerland by the top resort Kandersteg. Since conditions tend to be good in February and the walk-in tolerable, long queues often form at the base of the routes in the Hydrophobia sector. Those prepared to walk a further 30 minutes will almost certainly find a route with no other climbing parties on it.
