Infos & Booking


Discover the multi pitch routes climbing in the heart of the Vosges mountains, on the Martinswand cliff!

Located between Gérardmer and Colmar, facing the Hohneck (third highest peak of the massif), the Martinswand is one of the highest cliffs of the Vosges. It offers many itineraries of all levels, on a granite of excellent quality and in a very wild and exceptional environment. Indeed, the panoramas on the valley of Frankenthal and the valley of Munster are sublime.

The hundred or so routes are divided into different sectors (Petit Cervin, Martinswand, Strassburgerwand, Petites voies, Voies de sortie) for heights up to 120 meters. The climbing is varied: slabs, cracks, dihedrals and vertical walls, all on compact rock, follow one another for your greatest pleasure.

After a short warm-up to discover or rediscover the equipment and belay techniques, we will start a climb of over 100 meters high. The route will be chosen according to the level of the participants.
