After this vista, the real highlight of stage 5 follows. You follow the Gräfimattgrad in the direction of Schluchberg and reach the key passage. The rock passage Wagenleis is made safe with thick ropes to hold on to. However, surefootedness and a head for heights are still a prerequisite. The hike continues over the Schluchigrat to the Storegg pass. Nearby Lake Luter is a tempting place for a break and gives you renewed strength for the last steep ascent to the Bocki. From the highest point of the hike at alt. 2155 m, it's downhill all the way, past the Haltenhütte refuge and the Lake Untertrüb alp dairy. Stage 5 ends in the village of Engelberg.
• Good surefootedness
