NEW -Climbing-Crag Leitistein

Engelberg now has a new climbing crag for climbers. The new climbing crag is perfect for families and beginners and is located in the valley floor of Engelberg. 14 routes with the emphasis on difficulties from 3c to 5b are set up for you to rock climb. 

The Leitistein was already being climbed in the 70s. The few routes are definitely getting on in years and the rock was completely overgrown with trees and moss... The new/old climbing crag was upgraded by many volunteers during the difficult Corona situation this spring and has now become a highlight for all families and beginners

The climbing crag is very easy to reach from Engelberg. From the car park Bründler, Herrenrüti you only need a walk of about 3 minutes.
