Sport Climbing Balzers 490 m Climbing

More than forty years ago, beside the river Rhine, beneath the distinctive spire of the Ellhorn, the first climbing routes of the Fläscherberg were developed. By car or bicycle, the area is very easy to reach, making it a good spot for after-work sessions. All routes are well bolted, and there are many 'easier' routes suitable for children. The "Rheinstrand" itself is a beautiful and much visited recreational landscape. This is one of the southernmost points of Liechtenstein; the climbing itself is actually on Grisons soil, while just the parking in front of it belongs to Liechtenstein. For a solo evening session, a ground level traverse of the crag will provide ample muscle fatigue.

Routes with an intermediate stand are now mostly climbed as a single pitch with a 60- to 80-meter rope. Developers: Franz Ackermann, Gernot Wersin, Ruedi Eichenberger, Ernst Neeracher, Huldi Hug, Markus Laube, Thomas Wälti, Daniel Weber, Beat Schlegel, Daniel Zimmermann et al.; since the 1970s.
