List of Crags
|Region||Crag||Overview||Rock Type||Altitude||Number of routes||Range of Routes||Faces||Name|
|Switzerland - Basler Jura||Schauenburgfluh||Schauenburgfluh is an important crag near to Basel, and one of the largest in the Basler Jura. With 40m high walls and nearly 100 routes, it has lots of long wall climbs to offer, mostly in the middle grades. Some of the routes have two pitches, although most can be done in a single run out with an 80m rope. The routes are generally solid, but especially at the top, there is still some loose rock around, and helmets are advised.||Limestone||650m||40||5a - 7b||South East||Switzerland - Basler Jura|
