Day 1: Climbing Tour Ralligstöck - Spitzi Flue

After meeting in Sigriswil, we drive a bit further to reach the parking. After a relaxed start on the trail to Bärenfalle, we equip ourselves with climbing harnesses and helmets, then jump right into it by climbing the first rock steps of Ralligstöck. The climbing is interseprsed with walking sections, so the exposure is never severe and respite can always be found. There are also a wide choice of variations on the Ralligstöck, so your guide can make it as difficult or easy as you prefer. Sticking to the ridge provides the most interesting climbing – crest is best! After each rise you get to see above the treetops and appreciate the beautiful views of Lake Thun, Sigriswil and the pyramid-shaped Niesen. The ridge eventually flattens out and we leave the Ralligstöck behind us. A short section of footpath leads us to the rock slab of Spitzi Flue. Here we can again choose between an easier or a more difficult ascent. Stright up the 20m summit slab we climb!. Done – we're on the Spitzi Flue. The view from up here is awesome - high mountain peaks such as the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau, the deep blue Lake Thun or the perfectly staged forested cone of the Niesen. We enjoy our lunch here, before starting our descent. From the Spitzi Flue we return to the car via the normal hiking trail. If the tour proved too short for you, we can also add an ascent to the Sigriswiler Rothorn as a “bonus round”.
