The clim­bing rou­tes on the huge slab walls in the front of Balt­schie­der Val­ley are very rewar­ding clim­bing desti­na­ti­ons far away from the sum­mer heat. If it is too cold in Wiwan­ni to hold small hand­les, this sec­tion offers well-secu­red rou­tes, best clim­bing on led­ges, sur­pri­sing holes and slabs. Pfy­fol­ter or Geis­lei­tra are recom­men­ded as an intro­duc­tion — the key pas­sa­ges are short and the clim­bing is gre­at. The other rou­tes are most­ly more per­sis­tent and deman­ding. Alre­a­dy the 1.5‑hour access to the clim­bing para­di­se of Sat­tol­wä­schi is very varied beautiful.

Access: from Aus­ser­berg along the water pipe of Niwärch to the Balt­schie­der val­ley. From Choru­der­ri par­king in about 1.15 hours of the water pipe along to the clim­bing rocks. Par­king per­mis­si­on can be purcha­sed at the par­king machi­ne in Ausserberg.
Safe­guar­ding: Very good
Des­cent: Rap­pel over the routes.
Equip­ment: 50 m dou­ble rope, 18 quick-draws, run­ners for lengthening.
