The Tschingellochtighorn is a small limestone peak located on the north end of the Engstligengrat above the picturesque Engstligenalp south of Adelboden. It consists of four towers though the north summit is rather insignificant and now rarely climbed since a 1946 earthquake widened what was a one and a half meter leap across a cleft into a gap requiring a rappel and climb back out. The traverse of the other three towers is included in: "Berner Oberland Die 100 Schoensten Touren" (The 100 Finest Routes in the Berner Oberland) by Grossen and Rebuffat. The climb is rated UIAA III with a caution about loose rock on the middle and south towers. The rock is brittle, thin-bedded limestone.
