|How to get there||
There are several variants up the east side of this climb from Sarnen (471m) and along the west side of the Sarnersee. Sarnen (south) (474m) is a variant from Sarnen (there are three variants in Sarnen, but they are all similar, so I only mention two here). Along Sarnersee one could take a road up from Wilerbad (510m), or further away at Brand (487m) (small road taking off at a bus stop), from where there are two distinct variants up to the main Glaubenberg road. All climbs are roughly the same difficulty and all climbs are quite hard. There are also some not so good cattle grids higher up on this otherwise rather good and wide road.
The climb from the west starting in Entlebuch (723m) is slightly longer and less steep. (I have not been to that side.)
|Other comments||No views at the wooded pass, but it is nice if taking the slightly longer road up/down from/to Brand by Sarnersee. The Glaubenberg road is partly a military road, which explains why it is so wide despite not being used very much and there are military installations etc. on the upper part of the climb. The parallel Glaubenbielen/Glaubenbüelen Pass (1565m) south is a nicer alternative to this road, but it can also work as a circle tour with this pass. See also Sewenegg (1742m).
