Long/Lat: 9.531021, 46.883900

Unique Features And Strengths:

South-faced chunk of limestone with short approach.

Description:

This easy to access crag offers lots of routes tightly packed next to each other.

The crag is a short 3 minute walk from the car park. There is a gravel road that runs along the entire face of the crag and the routs are less than 5 meters from this road.

The climbing style is very slabby, lots of smearing with all routes being 70-80°.

Summary:
All Sport

Long/Lat: 9.867125, 46.814304

Unique Features And Strengths:

There is a really nice hike to get up to the crag

Description:

The crag is located at the top of Seehornwald. About an hour and a half walk from the car park (Adventure Park) It is full of easy routes and advertised as "suitable for families". Although I wouldn't take a 5 year old up there.

The ground at the bottom of the crag is fairly steep and there is a lot of lose stone and rock.

Most of the climbs are multi pitch and all bolts look extremely new.

Adventure Park Färich Flüelastrasse 7260 Davos Dorf

Access Issues:

The access is through a public hiking trail. No special shoes required, however hiking boots will make the last 100meters easier

Approach:

Start a or near the Adventure Park. The hiking trail starts about 50 meters west. Google Maps Cords: 46.811207,9.851695 The just follow the sign posted route. About an hour in to the hike you will see a Table and a sigh post to the Seehorn Klettergarten pointing to the left. From there it is another 30min.

Where To Stay:

Jugendherberge Davos Youthpalace. http://www.youthhostel.ch/de/hostels/davos

We must admit I didn't stay there. We "roughed it" in the Sunstar Hotel http://www.sunstar.ch/davos/.

Ethic:

There is a plastic tube tied to a sign post that contains (when we were there) 2 crag topos. It would be nice, if you go there, to print out a few copies of the Topo attached to this crag description and leave them there for the next climbers.

Unique Features And Strengths:

West-exposed limestone walls with short approaches and views onto the Rhine

Exit the highway at Trübbach and head east towards Balzers. Shortly after passing the bridge over the Rhine, turn left to loop back ("Heliport") onto the road atop the dam (closed on Sundays). Follow this road for ~ 1 km to its end and park there. The cliff is just behind the bushes.

1.9.1. Pizol 19 routes in Crag

Summary:
All Sport

Long/Lat: 9.403841, 46.974699

Description:

This small crag, located in St.Gallen, Switzerland, offers a good range of beginner rock climbing routes from 3c to 6a.

There is a website deticated to Pizol http://www.pizol.com/. Here you can find opening hours and prices of the lifts.

The crag is located around 2,222 meters above sea level, so remember to take some warm cloths because even when it is 30° at the car park it can be 11° at the crag.

Approach:

The crag is located on a hiking trail east of the Pizolhütte (7323 Vilters-Wangs, Switzerland).

You will need to take a gondola to the top station, then take two chair lifts to the the very top.

Then follow the very obvious path up the mountain for 10-15 min.

A day pass ticket will cost around 40 CHF (or 20 CHF if you have a Swiss SBB 1/2 tax or GA card so remember to take it)

Where To Stay:

The following website dedicated to Pizol lists accommodation http://www.pizol.com/sommer/planen-und-buchen/unterkuenfte/hotels.html

This site lists accommodation along with approx. distances from the Pizolhütte http://www.hotels-for-all.com/ch_san_gallo/pizolh%C3%BCtte_hotels_vilters-wangs.htm

1.9.2. Brochne Burg 68 routes in Crag

Summary:
All Sport

Long/Lat: 9.490538, 47.103469

Description:

This crag, located in the east of switzerland, Kanton St. Gallen, right next to Liechtenstein offers a tremendous amount of climbing for all levels. Brochne Burg has over 60 routes jam packed in to an extremely pictures and well protected grotto.

There is a public car park, a paved walk-in through wine fields with a view of to old Ruines set before typically swiss backdrop of snow capped Apls.

The crag is protected all day long from the sun, and the walls are laid out as though they were built for climbing. Each wall has its own dedicated grade band, plenty of room between the starts and even a picknick area.

However not all is good with Brochne Burg. Lots of the routes were polished and I found them to be under graded. So 4cs felt like 5b.

Access Issues:

Public car-park, paved foot path, easy walk from top of crag to climbing routes

Approach:

This has to be one of the most pleasant walk-ins both terms of ease and scenery I have ever had. There is an official public car-park (Google GPS Lat/Long 47.104734778404236, 9.48520302772522) From here it is a nice 15min stroll to the top of the crag

From the car-park walk back from where you came, back on the road that you drove up, about 15 meters down is the entrance (Google GPS Lat/Long 47.09967076778412, 9.48446810245514)

Simply follow this path through the wine fields (you will seen the Wartau Ruine) past the cow padock back into the forest

Then about 200 meters into the forest you will be located at the top of the crag. (Google GPS Lat/Long 47.103500962257385, 9.490111470222473)

Ethic:

As your walking from the public car-park to the hiking trail you may see cars parked along the road. Please do not get tempted to park here, you will only save your self 4mins of walking but will start to upset the locals.
