    The path over the Bleiki ridge is marked in blue and white. However, it has no exposed areas and does not require any alpine experience. A small ladder has to be climbed and there are also some harmless but cool climbing spots to be tackled ... but these do not represent any special requirements. However, especially when it is wet and residual snow, a spot (a spot in the shade and a little exposed , not extremely narrow, but the abyss is neat) but can quickly become tricky and should then only be walked with caution or choose another route.
    The view on the Bleiki ridge is beautiful and the path is highly recommended.
    Ps .: The Bleikigrat is actually called the Rätzelenweg and leads from the Bleikigrat via the Rätzelenweg to the Musenalp.

  • Great views of Lake Lucerne. Although not an alpine way, but nevertheless one should be free from giddiness and sure-footed. Beware of Nåsse.

  • The good old lead kigrat is now called "Rätzelenweg". Runs in Komoot as S6 way. I believe that the route has been slightly changed, there are now several climbing passages about 4, where you need your hands next to the ladder, but are not very difficult to climb. Surefootedness and a head for heights are important.
    Be careful when wet!

  • Beautiful route over the Rätzelen - marked blue and white, at the entrance (below) first a metal ladder, then here and there a few simple scrambles - in good weather the path is pure enjoyment!

  • Very nice path - marked blue and white, but not really dangerous or particularly difficult.
    At the entrance (below) a short metal ladder, later a few harmless scrambling spots.
    In good weather, pure enjoyment.
