Chaiserstock (Lidernen) 2514 m Route archive

For the alpine hiker a rewarding summit with some scrambling on the northwest ridge, for climbers a beautiful alpine climbing area on the west face. Here, the serious climbing in the Urnerland started in the middle of the 50s of the last century. Unforgotten is the legend of Franz Anderrüthi, who influenced the climbing on Lidernen for three decades. In a second exploration, especially the duo Peter Stadler and Toni Fullin left some nice legacies. Sämi Speck set a provisional end point with two very beautiful modern routes.
