Göschenertal (Göschener-valley) is a stunning valley in an alpine environment, offering plenty of climbing in all different styles: sport, trad, boulder and alpine climbing are easily accessible here. This topo covers the single pitch sport and trad climbing in the valley. Additionally, activities such as hiking, swimming and the playground invite for a longer stay in the valley, perhaps staying on the local campground in a scenic setting next to the river.

All sectors except Schwarze Wand are south facing, making spring, autumn and cooler summer days the perfect time to visit.

During the summer, when it is to hot to climb even at 1500 m elevation, check the world class multipitch options at Salbitschijen, Bergseeschijen and Feldschijen which surround the Göschenertal. Especially the Salbit Westridge and Southridge are world-famous climbs. Of equal quality with no crowds is the Feldschijen Southridge.

🧗 Sectors:

Schwarze Wand ⬛
The place for the hardmover looking for crimpy routes on bombproof granite, the steepest sectors in Göschenertal. In the shade for most of the day.

Geissenwand 👪
An easy approach and a flat & grassy meadow makes this the perfect place for families. The climbing is often on shallow, flared finger cracks or then on crimpy slabs. Impeccable granite!

Kompressorwand 🛠️
Most climbs are slabby in nature. Some have cracks, others just friction climbing or small crimps. One trad route, a splitter finger crack. On a few of the bolted routes cams and nuts can also be placed for practicing.

Jäntelboden 👪 🏖️
THE place to go for families, beginners or those who simply want to relax in the green meadow next to a little stream, while doing the occasional toprope climb. All routes are easily accessed from the top and several topropes are installed within a few minutes. The routes on the right have bolts, so that you can also practice lead climbing.

Dark Side 🌘
Most of the routes here are not climbed that often and not of the best quality. However, "Power Explosion" is a true gem for the crack and trad lover! It is bolted, but goes easily on trad, making it a prefect training route for those wanting to practice their trad skills.

Lochstafelparadies 😇
Perhaps the most varied sector. Lots of potential to practice trad climbing on bolted routes. Many lines have cracks and roofs, other are rather slabby in nature. There are also a few steep lines.
