Aussicht auf Bärenfallen

Aussicht auf Bärenfallen


Tour description

Getting straight to the point: The key section here involves a narrow, rocky ridge with a short ladder.
From the valley of Bleiki Ridge, which you can easily reach from Niederrickenbach, the tour leads over steep rock steps up to Rätzelen. The next ridge (also the highest point) is child’s play in comparison. It’s like a small plateau.
The descent is via Ober- and Untermusenalp to Bärenfallen, including a short steep section. The tour wraps up via Ahorn in Niederrickenbach, a Swiss «place of power».
