Natural climbing site "Cave of the Dwarfs"

The Dwarven Cave is above all a place of legend

This climbing site offers routes of a fairly high level. It has the advantage of being located near Altkirch and Mulhouse. Today, it is the only natural climbing site located in the territory of the Alsatian Jura.

Generalities : the rocks of the Cave of the Dwarves form a cliff about 25 meters high, oriented to the NE. and boxed in for about ten meters in a small gorge. The location and orientation of the rocks are such that they never see the sun. The "Tip Top" sector therefore remains dry during light rains. The tracks located in this sector take place on an excellent overhanging rock and nicely concreted. It is a summer cliff par excellence.

Track palette : 15 routes and variants ranging from 6b to 8a. The essential: Tip-Top 

Equipment : all the routes are equipped: Return with chain and carabiner at the top of each route.

Recommended season: summer, autumn. Sometimes impractical in spring due to resurgences.
