The first climbing track of Grisons was built in 2005 right at the back of the valley of St Antoenien across the southern rock face of Sulzfluh. The alpine route is convincing by its contact with the rock and requires a excellent condition.

From the car park P6 it takes about 1,5 hours to get to the starting climbing point. You can follow the signs of the trail in the direction of the the climbing track. You go past the guest house Sulzfluh towards the lodge Carschina and a path branches off to the right before you get to the lodge Carschina. A path in a scree slope leads you to the entry of the climbing path which is marked with the letter E (in red) and a white slab.

 

In the lower part there is terraced rock with several short steep passages. Almost at the beginning of the route you will find the ladder to surmount the 'entrance face'. This is a first little challenge and gives the climbler the opportunity to check his/her self-assessment. Afterwards you will get to the 'Obelix-crossing' and up to the start of the ramp. From here on there will  be no further possibility to drop out !

After climbing through the 'ramp' you will reach the 'Geissrücken' (back of a goat) and finally the 'Bänkli' (small bench). This is the halfway point of the route. Now follows a longer crossing of a kind of grass belt, before the second and steeper part starts with the entry to 'Panoramica'. The crosspaths in the practically vertical parts are particularly impressive. It is fascinating to look down into the depths. The crossing of the 'Deichmann-path' is requesting one's balance. After an entry into the book (Wandbuch) the route goes on until you finally reach the entry to 'The Wailing Wall'. This phyisically extremely strenuous part of the route leads to a short 'bridge' which guides you to the 'wall of the peak'. Congratulations - you've made it !

After a contribution to the cashbox for the maintenance, it only takes a few minutes to reach the cross on the summit of Sulzfluh at a height of 2817 metres. A marvellous panoramic view, deserved by physical strain. - Who knows them all, the valleys, the ridges, the peaks .......

 

 Descent (all the descent routes are marked mountain tracks):

a) via 'Gemstobel' to Partnun

b) via 'Karrenfelder' to Tilisuna guest-house

c) via 'Rachen' to Lindauer guest-house

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

From the car park P6 it takes about 1,5 hours to get to the starting point. It is best to follow the signs of the foot path in the direction of the climbing track. You pass the mountain hut Sulzfluh in the direction of the hut Carschina. Before you get to Carschina

 

 

Author’s recommendation

To make a stop at the lodge Carschina is a must - it is amazing to taste all the delicacy that comes out of their stove !!
