Lauterbrunnen, Climbing

Lauterbrunnen’s situation in a valley flanked with towering cliffs should provide an indication to the neighbourhoods climbing credentials. It is a region of famous or should I say infamous mountains that draw climbers from all over the world. Probably the most prominent of those is the Eiger whose north face has been luring intrepid mountain men for nearly three quarters of a century now having first been scaled by an Austro-German climbing team of four in 1938. The mountain was actually originally conquered by Swiss guides Christian Almer and Peter Bohren and Irishman Charles Barrington by way of a western route back in 1858.

Sharing the airspace with the Eiger are names like Jungfrau and Monch, impressive mountains in their own right that pose many tantalising treats for would be explorers. But don’t be daunted if you’re a novice as the region offers loads of sport climbing and via ferrata opportunities too. Some of which are none too difficult, in fact your granny could probably even manage some of the routes.

Climbers of all levels will find something to their taste somewhere in the Jungfrau region. Whether a hardened mountaineer or green behind the ears, Lauterbrunnen should prove an adequate if not excellent base from which to access the full range of climbing the region has to offer.
