Description 

Small area which is home to 7 routes ranging from UIAA 9 to 11. Two classic routes are here: Action Direct and Slimline. If you're like most mortals and you can't climb at the level these climbs are, please stay off them to keep from polishing the beginning and making it even harder.

Getting There 

Drive to Neuhaus. From Neuhaus, continue East toward Königstein. When you reach the village of Krottensee, turn and head toward Maximiliansgrotte. 1.2 km after Maximiliansgrotte, you'll see a crossing of forest roads. Park 80m after that. Walk another 20m along the road and hang a left onto the path through the forest. After 60m you'll see a path on the left heading up to the rock.

Climbing Season

For the Frankenjura area.

Now you can see exactly how to find it, should you come visit the Frankenjura. This route was the world's first internationally recognized 9a (5.14d/UIAA 11).
