Hohler Fels

International > Europe > Germany > Frankenjura > Hohler Fels

Description

A really neat area with routes ranging from maybe 20 feet to 80 feet tall. Difficulty ranges from UIAA 5 to 9 (5.6 to 5.12d). For ease of use, I've included the Gmabrocken in this area since it is immediately in front of Hohler Fels. You actually walk between the Gmabrocken and the cave to get to Oberlandweg (SW Kante). The view from atop is amazing, and the hiking leading to this area is some of the best I've ever done.

Getting There

The gateway to the crags is the first thing you see when you get here, and counts as part of the Hohler Fels area. The cave will be on your right when you walk through the arch, with routes to your left and right, in front of you and down below. The Gmabrocken is the pillar in front of you as you walk through the arch.
