FAQs: Mountain Climbing in Excalibur

What should I know about Mountain Climbing Excalibur?

Situated just outside of the idyllic Swiss village of Meiringe, Excalibur presents the perfect mountain climbing challenge for upper-intermediate and advanced rock climbers in the Bernese Oberland.

Climbing the pristine limestone pillar begins with a moderate ascent up the steep green hills just off of highway 11. As you approach the foot of the massif, you will gain roughly 700 meters of elevation on grassy and unprotected terrain.

Once at the foot of the massif, you will need to climb Vorbau, which consists of two 40-meter long pitches rated 6a+, 6b, respectively.

Once atop this, you will be at the foot of Exbalibur and ready to climb this 6b-rated multi-pitch limestone wall. The climb to the top takes several hours, but all the effort is well worth it with simply stunning views of central Switzerland.

Why should I choose Excalibur for my Mountain Climbing adventure?

Stunning scenery

Tucked into the heart of the Bernese Oberland, Wendestöcke, the masif upon which Excalibur sits, provides stunning views of the surroundings. From the top of this limestone behemoth, verdant forests, snow-capped peaks and the picturesque green valleys sprawl beneath you. Not much compares.

Challenge yourself

Boasting well-textured limestone, numerous pitches and a 700-vertical meter ascent, Excalibur presents the perfect challenge for upper-intermediate and advanced rock climbers alike. Put your skills to the test and enjoy some excellent friction climbing on this famed Swiss massif.

Plenty more to do too

Once you’ve finished your exciting ascent of Excalibur, and if you have a bit more time to spare, then you are perfectly situated for plenty of other incredible mountaineering adventures. Dozens of other incredible mountain peaks are all easily accessible from right nearby. Check out Giglistock if you can.
