The only crag that is not closed for climbing is Berdorf.
The rock is sandstone, hard on the surface, soft below. Holds break regularly!
Extremly crowded when the weather is good.
Many high quality pitches from 5.5 to 5.13.

Getting There 

Drive to Berdorf, turn left after you see a Chinese restaurant on your right(if coming from Lux City), follow this road untill it splits, take the left fork, and you come to a parking area.
Approach is 10min. From the lower part parking lot you take an obvious trail, and follow it until you go through a 'hole', down a few stairs, and turn left.
