The area hosts, among others, three awesome climbs: Dropline, Welcome to the Machine (rarely in), and Dracula -- possibly the most famous climb at Frankenstein.

Getting There 

The Dropline Area lies within 15 minute walk along the tracks from the iron bridge. Look left and locate the unmistakable yellowish icicle on the left. That's Dropline.
