A small, yet tall wall with a million pockets on it. While there are only 10 routes on this wall (including a bouldering traverse), they are all quality, which makes this area well worth a visit. The variety of difficulty here is perfect for the average climber, but beginners might find the climbs too difficult and hardcore climbers might get bored quickly.
The trick to climbing the routes here is to keep your arms straight, your feet under you, and don't spend too much time looking for the perfect hold.
From the parking area indicated in the Katzenlöcher area description. Head down the road to your left as you're facing the sign for Zimmerbergwände. When you come to a T-intersection, head to the right and continue on this dirt road, keeping to the right until you see the crag on your right. The path up is steep and is about 700m or 10-15 min walk from the car. When you take this path up, this wall is the one on the left.
Climbing Season For the Frankenjura area.

This route also offers the opportunity to practice a bit more technique than just pocket pulling. Though the climbing is mostly on big pockets, the first bolt is very high and takes a bit of mind control to get to. To provide a little extra security, you could try bringi...[more] Browse More Classics in International
