Climbing area Chalcofo / Pärüülu, St. German
The climbing area was developed in the summer of 2013 by the Alpine School Bietschhorn, Ausserberg.
There are 19 routes between 6 and 16 meters, which each are equipped with many bolts and that are largely kept in Plaisir style.
Due to the southwest exposure and the dry location, it can be climbed all year round. In summer it gets very hot there in the afternoon.
The routes are vertical to overhanging.
The climbing area is located on private grounds where climbers are tolerated until further notice.
Please follow the described path and behave accordingly.
Approach St. German (12min):
1) From the large car park in St. German / Busstop follow the hiking trail in the direction of Ausserberg. After the gorge (after about 5 min. march), a path leads off to the right at the first left turn.
2) Follow this trail 40m down to the water pipeline. Turn left and follow the water stream for about 5 minutes; on the left the rocks in the meadow become visible. Continue to go (up to the level of the deepest wall section) and gently cross the fence at the point where the water pipes are bridged by a large rock plate.
Approach Ausserberg (22 min):

In this right turn, you go to the left on a trail track. This trail goes 40m down to the water pipeline. Turn left and follow the water for about 5 minutes; on the left the rocks in the meadow become visible. Continue to go (up to the level of the deepest wall section) and gently cross the fence at the point where the water pipelines are bridged by a large rock plate.
