Reipertsgesee Rock Climbing
The tiny town of Reipertsgesee in the evening. Thi...
Reipertsgesee is a little village in the Frankenjura. When you walk into the forest behind Reipertsgesee, you'll find 3 crags separated by 100m or so. The climbing is on nice, grippy limestone pockets and stays cool in the summer. All of the walls offer plenty for the moderate climber, and you shouldn't have a problem with crowds. The main disadvantage to these crags is that they tend to take a while to dry after a rain.
To get to Reipertsgesee from a major city, take the A9 to Exit 47 and drive through Spies towards Betzenstein/Hetzendorf. At the intersection take a right and then your first left. You'll be in Reipertsgesee. Near the beginning of the village you'll see a bus stop on your left. Park here or in the little parking lot behind the pond. Get out and walk down this road across the field and into the forest. The crags take between 5 and 10 minutes to reach, and the path is flat and easy.
The GPS coordinates point directly to the parking area directly next to the pond.

This is a pretty difficult route to onsight, so I'll provide a tip if you'd like to read it. At the third bolt, avoid the really tempting underclings to your left and go right on the small pockets and difficult feet. You'll work up to a left hand crimp to pull yourself up over the bulge. Then head back left to the bolt and up to the last bolt....[more] Browse More Classics in International
