The Frankish Jura is a superb climbing region and is in the northern part of the Amberg-Sulzbacher region. The variety and quantity of climbing options are exceptional: 1,000 cliffs offer 12,000 climbing routes. Redpointing was invented here, and the first Bühler climbing bolt was cemented here.
But these cliffs are not just for the international climbing elite; pleasure climbers also travel to enjoy these climbs. Two of the most well-known and best highland climbing routes in Germany, the Noris climb and the Höhenglück climb, are found in the Amberg-Sulzbacher region.
