Falkenfluh - Walfisch

The continuation of Falkenfluh past Höhle Gasse, is again steep and hard. Many of the routes here were put up at the end of the last century, and remain test pieces for locals and visiting climbers. The rock is mostly good, and reasonably well bolted, if maybe a bit sporting in places.
