A valley in the Zurich Oberland with numerous climbs, mostly short and mostly easy. So a popular destination for classes and groups! Some easy walk-ups for toproping, as well.

But also a few quite fun multipitiches which step up through the forest, making an enjoyable day out.

The valley is around 700 m only, so does not form ice so early or stay so long.

Some more basic detail here

Getting There 

Drive to town of Steg. Follow signs for "Orüti", leads you to a little village at start of the valley. You can drive down the road (despite "no cars" sign, if you're willing to risk it) and park at a wide parking lot. Hike 30 min or so along the valley, passing an impressive large waterfall along the way.

Mad fun on P4.

Forest Multipitch WI4  Europe : Switzerland : ... : Tösstal
One of the several unassuming-looking starts of ice, but keeps going up, and up, and up... super fun.Seven pitches, could have been maybe one more but ice was looking crappier. Lots of options....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
