Crag features

Many sectors with mostly single pitch routes and some notable multi-pitch routes. Grade 5 routes are well represented among the multi-pitch routes, but are fairly rare among the single pitch routes. Most routes are in the range 6a-6c range, with some harder offerings. Development of routes still ongoing (2014), see the Filidor website for new additions. Perhaps the most impressive venue in the Bernese Jura.

Route listing here is according to the comprehensive SAC "Jura bernois" guidebook (2013). Plaisir Jura (2008/2011) covers several sectors, giving multi-pitch routes in grades 5a to 6b+, single pitch routes up to 7b+, and about 140 climbs in total.

Approach notes

By car, take the Route de Bienne from Frinvillier towards the village of Plagne and park in an obvious large parking spot on the right. A path opposite leads to the top of the nearest crags in 30 minutes. Alternatively continue to the village of Plagne, take a left turning in the village towards the outdoor sport pitch, and park in the large parking area before the pitch. The westward paths either side of the pitch both lead to the top of the crag in 2km or so.

Access paths to some of the crag bases by ladders, cables, and traversing of steep forested hillside, in parts a little adventurous.
