At the end of last year it became known that the Lungern climbing area was closed until further notice. Despite the ban, climbing continues.
The climbing area Lungern, with its long and endurance-heavy routes, is one of the most popular climbing destinations in the region. The area has been closed since the end of 2020. The reason for this is blasting, as the climbing guide publisher Filidor made known at the time.
Blocking is ignored
As our editorial team was informed, this blocking is being disregarded by climbers. This is what happened on the weekend of Pentecost 2021.
At the request of LACRUX, the building authority of the municipality confirmed that the ban continues to apply and asked them to respect it.
The ban was imposed because construction work is going on in the area. In addition, a geological report by the municipality came to the conclusion that the danger of rock falls in the area is too great. A large block above the wall could fall down at any time.
