Scout climbing at Winteregg Kandersteg Switzerland

Activity overview

The perfect activity for any group interested in learning the basics of rock climbing, or for intermediate climbers looking to experience a range of different types of outdoor climbs.

Our guides take you straight up to Winteregg (1'908m) with the Sunnbüel cable car, and you will spend the whole day exploring the different climbing areas. The focus is on learning in a challenging and fun environment. Basic skills include equipment selection, knots and ropework, belaying, movement and climbing techniques. Our guides will ensure safety and set up climbs tailored to the ability of the group.
