Just like areas further up on the Furka pass, the climbing venues near the Albert-Heim hut are some of the best that Switzerland has to offer, offering an abundance of raw, steep alpine granite of impeccable quality in a breathtaking setting.
The approach begins from Tiefenbach, on the east side of the the Furka pass. Park there or pay a nominal fee for use of a former military road that will gain you some elevation and cut your approach time by 15-20 minutes. There is a clear trailhead for the approach to the hut.
