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 .......
