Discover the stunning Academic Route to the summit of Bifertenstock. Join us as we take you on a 2-day trip to climb this mountain near Tödi in Switzerland.

Located in the Glarus Alps, Bifertenstock offers exceptional climbing conditions. The Academic route will take us towards the NW wall, leading through narrow gullies until we cross an icy ridge to the summit. You’ll truly enjoy your adventure on the alpine terrain of rock, firn & ice!

We’ll begin from Linthal and head from Tierfehd to Hinter Sand. We will go up a steep slope to reach the comfortable Fridolin hut with amazing views. Then, the next day, after a delicious breakfast, we’ll set off while it is still dark. Equipped with a headlamp, we’ll walk across the Biferten glacier towards the entrance of the Academic’s Route. A good hike of about an hour will take us to the center of the wall.

Moving further, a narrow gully will lead us to a more challenging section of the route where we might require some equipment. We will also catch breathtaking panoramic views of the alpine valley. Next, we’ll head onto an ice ridge which leads to the summit of Bifertenstock.

The descent will be thrilling as well. We’ll head towards the Griess glacier further along the Limmerensee reservoir and take the cable car to Tierfehd, from where we’ll depart towards our home, taking back with us a bag full of unforgettable memories.

So, what are you waiting for? Book your place now to climb the Bifertenstock in the Swiss Alps.
