A classic area with a bunch of routes which are located on different sides of the same very large formation. There are some classic routes here, but most of them are difficult.

Getting There 

Drive to Rupprechtstegen, which is south of Velden. At the north end of the town, on your way to Velden, you'll see this crag on your left. There is parking on both sides of the street.
You can also reach this crag relatively quickly and easily with the train from Nürnberg. If you choose this route, walk from the train station through Rupprechstegen (or along the river on the nice hiking trail) in the direction of Velden until you see this crag on your left. There's a bridge to cross from the trail to the town, and this bridge also happens to lie directly in front of the crag.

Climbing Season

A slight depression provides a good shake below an intimidating bulge at 40 feet. Long moves between good holds ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
