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.
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)
