Lehn

One of the best crags for hard sport climbing in the Bernese Oberland. Naturally this has led to many of the routes getting polished, but despite this it remains a favourite destination. The climbing is very interesting, on a limestone / sandstone mix, with all types of holds, from big jugs to tiny crimps through various slopers. Routes are up to 30m in length, generally solid and well bolted, although the bolts can sometimes be spacy.

The view from the parking of the Eiger, Monch and the Jungfrau, adds to the atmosphere and attraction.
