First - Schwarzhorn - First


Description

At 2928 m, the Schwarzhorn is the highest peak on the northern edge of the pre-alpine mountains near Grindelwald. This challenging hike, which is only suitable for sure-footed hikers accustomed to the mountains who do not have vertigo, crosses the mountain path that is well-marked from the Schilthorn. Navigating the uppermost part of the very steep climb is tricky - the ridge between Gemschberg and Schwarzhorn is wide at times but also sometimes very narrow and requires extreme caution. For experienced hikers, the path via Grosse Chrinne and along the western ridge is the optimal ascent to the Schwarzhorn. Those who choose this option get the benefit of an airy climbing atmosphere. Less-experienced climbers can book this tour at the Grindelwald mountain climbing centre which offers the experience twice a week under the expert leadership of a mountain guide. The effort of the climb is rewarded in both cases with an overwhelming panoramic view of central Switzerland, the Bernese Oberland East and the Bernese Alps. This tour is not held in fog and bad weather. Note(s) In the upper area, portions of the path are exposed and steep. It is classified as an easy via ferrata according to the Hüsler scale (K1-2) With partially exposed passages, a self-belaying climbing harness is required for the navigation of the Schwarzhorn with the via ferrata. End of May to mid-October.
