Summary

Gruyère covers a big portion of Fribourg's foothills of the alps. Gentle hills and limestone mountains dominate the landscape and offer almost endless climbing in many crags of all sizes and styles.

Description

Here the term Greyerzerland (Gruyère) is broader than the political or strict geographical definition. It covers climbing areas from the German speaking area of Fribourg (Sensenbezirk), through the foothills of Fribourg's alps up to the Jaun pass (incl. the Gastlosen) and to Montbovon towards the Pays-d’Enhaut.

This region mostly offers single and multi-pitch sport climbing and some bouldering on mostly excellent rock in a beautiful setting. It offers enough for everyone in all grades but also some of the hardest routes in Switzerland.

You will find climbing year round but the best time for most areas is from early spring to late fall.
