The Vertical Jungfrau Marathon leads from Stechelberg up to the Jungfrau a 4,158-meter-high peak of the bernese alps. The route involves technical approach terrain, two rock walls (difficulties up to 7a (6c obl.)) and a serious high-altitude tour/ridge climb until the summit of the Jungfrau. The history of this logical line were born by Res Leibundgut and Sacha Wettstein who has been the first ones to combine the Stägers Bürtplätz and Fätze Bitze in 1997 finishing with the Silberhorngrat until the summit of the Jumgfrau. The Jungfrau marks the boundary between the canton of Bern and Valais.
