Central Switzerland

From a climbing point of view it has a diverse collection of climbing, from the long alpine routes in the granite region of Galenstock, to the short limestone crags bordering the lake, as well as much in betweeen. Whatever your taste, it is certainly a beautiful area, and the lake offers a fantastic base, particularly in the summer when its clear, warm waters offer the perfect relaxation after a days climbing.
