Metal Hurlant


Beautiful slab route, even if the crux pitch is in a dihedral-chimney.
Recently bolted again (S3)
Be careful, the guards are often out of the climbing line!
In the first pitches the rock does not have great grip and is not very worked, it improves at the top.
Indispensable series of friends from 1 to 3 of which at least 3 or 4 of
N ° 2 (medium-small) or N ° 0.75 (BD) for the crux pitch.


From the car park, take the walkway that indicates Lauteraarhutte, cross the dam and, with an easy path with ups and downs, go up all over Lake Grimsel. Reached the base of the wall, take a steep path that soon leads under the large slabs (written at the base). About 1.30 hours

First Climb:

Normal mountaineering equipment. Two 60 m ropes, 12 Nuts quickdraws and a series of friends from 0.5 to 3 doubling the 0.75, better if triple for L7 and possibly the 2
