Falkenfluh - Twelve

The crag nearest to the Flakenfluh staircase contain many excellent routes and is justifiably popular. Climbing is on walls typically with good solution pockets or short cracks, and the routes are often strenuous. It gets the sun in the afternoon, but the trees can keep it pleasantly cool. The routes can be slow to dry after rain.
