Stadelhofener Dunkelkammer Rock Climbing
The main wall
A pleasant little crag which has an L form to it. The crag is nestled in the trees and, due to its form, it doesn't get much wind coming through. That may have a little to do with its unusually rough texture. Expect to have sore hands at the end of your day here.
On the left side (north-facing) there are several boulder-routes and as you work towards the right they get taller. Nevertheless, they all maintain a boulder-aspect, with a difficult, bouldery start on pockets or features.
The right side is taller and faces south-east. The routes on the far right tend to have their crux at the top.
Stadelhofen is just south of Gößweinstein. The guidebook says you should park in Stadelhofen and walk towards Sachsendorf for 500m until you reach power pole 11. There's also a very small section of pavement on the right side of the road between pole 11 and 12 where you can park and spare yourself the 500m walk. Directly across from pole 11 is a trail heading through the little field into the woods. Hike 2 minutes straight up to the crag.

The crux is getting off the ground. The low first bolt protects you if you don't have a pad, but looks a little suspect. The 2nd is difficult to clip, so stick-clipping the 2nd may be a good idea. Once you can stand after the 2nd bolt, you can rest before heading up to the 3rd (a ring) where you'll encounter a second crux....[more] Browse More Classics in International
