Rocktype Sandstone (hard)
Altitude 819m a.s.l
A fantastic sport crag which is now considered the Bernese Oberland's best known and famous 'hardman' areas. Grades start at 7a, going right up to Hubris at 8c+, although there are some worthwhile climbs in the 6s. The rock is unusual, possessing many of the features of sandstone but with the density and crimps of limestone. It is fairly steep and offers technical and powerful climbing. Best time to visit would be spring, late summer or autumn.
|Lehn is a brilliant sport crag with some very special routes. Well worth a visit on its own or combined with some longer alpine routes. The climbing starts at 6bish. The routes are technical font esque holds, very interesting absorbing climbing.|
