The Schweiz Plaisir Jura guidebook describes the rock climbing and sport climbing at grades up to F6c in the Jura Mountains. The guidebook covers the area from Lausanne on the shore of Lake Geneva along the northwest of Switzerland, through Bienne, Moutier, Delemont, and onto Basel.
In total 61 separate crags are described, which provide a good mixture of single pitch sport routes and multi-pitch routes, mainly on limestone rock. Many of multi-pitch routes are well bolted, but where Trad gear is required for these the guidebook indicates the number cams and nuts required for each route. The crag topo's are very clear, with all the routes given French grades (each pitch if appropriate).
At the start of each area there is a good location map, plus information about the type of protection required, and length of rope. The crag topo's are very clear, with all the routes given French grades (each pitch if appropriate).
Published in 2008 this guidebook is written in German, French and English text throughout.
