Far away from the „true mountains“, the Franconian Jura mountains became the cradle of European sports climbing and a promoter of worldwide sports climbing - numerous climbing innovations were invented here. Today already more than 10,000 different climbing routes can be found on the jagged dolomite faces and towers. Not only the famous “Bühler hook”, but also the idea of the “red point climbing” were developed in this Bavarian landscape. This new style has provoked a true climbing mania all over the world.
