Hintere Stadelhofener Wände Rock Climbing
Several popular crags which are in a beautiful location. Also, being very near the center of the Frankenjura, this area sees quite a bit of action and is therefore well developed, though also a bit polished.
From Forchheim, drive towards Ebermannstadt and then continue towards Gößweinstein. Follow the signs until you get to Gößweinstein. From Gößweinstein, head towards Pottenstein. 100m after the sign telling you you're leaving Gößweinstein, take the right towards Stadelhofen. After 650m you'll see a little entrance to a parking lot surrounded by trees. You know you're in the right spot if you have a big overgrown rock formation on your right. Walk toward the sign and take the trail through the woods. Head uphill for about 150m (it heads downhill in the last 50m or so) and you'll meet a forest road. Head right and follow this road for about 300m until you get to a path marked with a yellow circle that leads you out of the woods. After about 150m you should see a bench on your left, a big field in front of you, and a vague path to your right. Take the path around the field and head to the crag which you can see from here.

THE route to do here. It's one of the best 5.10s in the Frankenjura. Due to the date of the first ascent, it was likely named this in response to the Chernoble accident.Climb up the overhanging rock trending slightly right for the first half before trending back left toward the anchor. This route is very onsight-friendly, but you can't spend too much time looking for the "best" hold. Due to the overhanging nature, you've only got so much time to choose your holds. Some ARE better than others, bu...[more] Browse More Classics in International
