Simplonpass Climbing 1970 m Climbing
Previously a key military vantage point, the Simplonpass is now an important climbing area for the Oberwallisers. It offers wonderfully 'gneiss' climbing for ambitious climbers. From technically demanding wall climbing to power-sapping overhangs, its got it all. The sector Stalde has particularly pleasant routes more suited to the 'plaisir' climber.
The main Simplonpass sector was developed in the years 2000 to 2002 by Beat Ruppen and Antonio Ricci. The sector Stalde: in the years 2004-2010 by Willy Burgener.
