Tour description


Engeloch – From the Engeloch Restaurant, drive west over the Chrummbach Bridge at Chluismatta. Then traverse the Alpstafel and the slope on the left bank of the Ritzibach creek, up onto the Wysse Bode plateau (2,113 m). At the end of the plateau you will see a steep slope with rocky outcrops. These can be overcome east (left) of the waterfall via the ramp. Cross the Ritzibach above the riegel and ascend towards Sirwoltesattel (2’621 m).


Simplonpass – The descent is via the ascent route. This may vary depending on the risk assessment. If conditions are good and safe, a racy and steep descent through the Ritzitälli is possible.

Bielti / Simplonpass – If conditions are good and safe the descent to the Bielti is also possible. This will require a last ascent (approx. 30 minutes) back onto the Simplonpass at the end of the tour.
