There was a restaurant hut on Stieregg
by Bäregg and was not visible from Grindelwald.
This quiet restaurant was swallowed by landslip in 2005.
They built a new hut on Bäregg just next to Stieregg.
In 2006 there was another rock fall on the other side at Eiger
These both activities were caused by shrinking glacier obviously.

Near a bridge under Pfingseggbahn
Martins hole (from the indication on the path)
As legend has it, a long time ago the Eiger and the Mettengerg
closer together than nowadays. Ice, water and boulders gathered
and by bursting out laid waste the pasturage in the valley. A
man by the name of Maritn, the size of giant, brought this
an end with a show of strength. He braced himself at this point
back against the Mettenberg, pressed with his feet and his stick
against the Eiger and with his stick poked a hole in the mountain
up on the Eiger. It is visible from this path a bit further down
towards the valley - and twice a year, about three weeks before
after the winter solstice, the sun shined through this "funny"
exactly onto the Grindelwald church.
Originally these rocks were a wall.
They say that it was not possible to eat something outside because
dust caused by the rock fall.
