DescriptionThis is a slabby old sandstone quarry with an array of fun slopers. A Klettergarten it is called. Most climbs are 30 meters or less, there are a few multi(two)-pitch routes, UIAA between 3 and 7 (5.4-5.10c), most come in at 5 (5.7). All belays are in the shade, climbing often in the sun. You may climb here year round, it will just be practice climbing on wet sandstone in the winter. Here is a wonderful topo site: klettergarten-bad-heilbrunn…
At Bad Heilbrunn, the grades start at almost walking on far left and gradually get more and more difficult. This makes it a wonderful place to take beginners and to train. Even better, if you get rained out, there is a 9m climbing gym in town for 5euro with a sauna, pizza, and pro-shop. You may hear this place referred to as the Bichl crag as it is also close to Bichl.
NOTE: Please do not top-rope off of anchors, hang your own locking from them, and rapp-clean, this will preserve the anchors. Please do not walk off the top. The rock here may be brittle. BE SURE TO USE A 60m ROPE.
