Alpine Pass Disentis Sedrun


Steinmänner halten Wache


In the mIttelalter, the hemlocks and their small cattle and pilgrims have already crossed this pass and some have died in the process.

The Disentis monk Placidus a Spescha (1752 - 1833) was a passionate alpinist and hiking society. Like hardly any other, he explored and described the Alpine world, collected plants and minerals and made sketches and maps. In 1812, a journey over the "Krüzli mountain through the Kärschela and Rheus Valleys led him to Einsiedeln and again the neat way back". He must have been far and wide the only one who climbed over the Krüzli Pass at the beginning of October 1812. The mountain pass, Spescha later noted, unfortunately remained unknown to the strangers "regardless of the many mountain travellers". It is worth the effort to get to know this Alpthal more closely; for it is as strange in its nature as any other Alpthal. Yes, the peculiar changes of the rocks, the high mountains, the large and varied smoothers and the beautiful waterfalls that one encounters in them give some preference over others.»


Since a rockfall in 2016, the pass has only been accessible from Sedrun via Alp Caschlé. (as of August 2020) The Way of St. James No. 43 is newly signaled and leads through the Val Milar.
