Some friends recently moved to Hittnau and I was invited to their new home last Saturday. I had no idea where the heck Hittnau was, but have been told it's in the Zürioberland. Since I'm not familiar with this part of Switzerland, but knew there is a "Zürioberland Alpin" community on this site, I looked for some adventurous approches for Hittnau and found what I was looking for: The "Stoffel Eastwall", which Delta (1) and Sputnik (2) describe as well.

I started my hike at the train station cff logo Wetzikon and walked towards Kempten and at Müli up to Burgweid and via Rosinli to Ebnerberg. From there I followed the marked hiking path towards Stoffel. At Känzeli I then didn’t walk up to Stoffel on the normal route but took the path down towards Neuthal in order to enter the “east wall” of Stoffel. It’s a short and pretty wild adventure, but I wouldn’t rate it higher than a T4, even though it was quite slippery. As mentioned in the other hikr reports the steepest part is about 60° and the enjoyment is arguable. However, for me this approach to Hittnau was a pleasure anyway.

From Stoffel I then went down to the Golfhaus and continued to the Luppmen pond and over to the Zimberg which offers quite a good view.

Amazed to see that my hometown is liked by the hikr-community ;-)
Congratulations for climbing the famous Stoffel eastwall! As I can judge from your pics you probably missed the steepest (and most funny?) parts of the wall. I guess you climbed up where you would go when skiing the wall. A bit more to the left there are some almost vertical steps.

The local is right, I was on the right side in the wall... looks like I have to go back to your hometown/mountain in order to get the "real fun"!
