Fliehende Stürme -
One of the best icefalls in Switzerland. The three pitches are delicate, intricate and exposed, but nevertheless offer good protection.
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.
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.
Abseil down the route.
Full ice climbing rack.
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.
