Basic information

For skilled climbers, our mountain guides recommend the climbing area in Plangeross in the valley of Piz. The so-called Witch's cauldron (in German "Hexenkessel") enchants climbers with ca. 90 climbing tours. Bertram Tschiderer and Patric Rupprich renovated the climbing area in 2012.

Approach

Park at the designated parking area for the Rüsselheimer and Kaunergrat Hut. From there, follow the steep trail 911 uphill towards Rüsselheimer hut for ca. 30 minutes. Leave the trail to the left at the rocks and orientate yourself on the climb tracks towards the climbing garden. The access leads through an avalanche line. Especially in spring, when the access is already clear of snow, beware of avalanches from high-alpine areas above.
