Raised risk of falling rocks is in spring! Some parts of the climbing routes are not cleaned then. The freezing and melting cycle loosens even the firmest rock.

  • Increased danger of rock fall:
  • Above us are ibexes, red deer, chamois and the routes are often heavily populated. Even the cautioust of climbers might loosen a stone which can become fatal for the followers, even when they are protected by a helmet.
  • Therefore be cautious, watch the vicinity, listen (listening to music on headphones impairs your perceptions). Make yourself and the group realize this so that others aren't endangered by your rock fall.
  • Great danger comes from rope teams. As their dangling ropes over edges or rocks loosens stones easily.
