This is the most famous bouldering area (wall) in Germany, and in the 1970s, possibly the world. If the history interests you, come and check it out and try these ultra-classics. If you want quality, go somewhere else. If you want good friction, go somewhere else (or come here when it's -10°C).
This crag does have some positive aspects too: the bouldering is fun and difficult (problems start at 6a and continue up to 8b), and there are several traverses. Climbing on marbelized limestone will also make you feel invincible once you're back on some rock with friction. Also, there is pretty much nothing more you can do to this crag to make it any worse. ;) It also stays light here for a long time thanks to the south-west facing.
There are also some sport routes here, but most only have one bolt and still top out.
The name of the crag means "Wailing Wall".
Getting ThereThis crag lies a skip and a jump north of Untertrubach, so if you're staying at Oma Eichler's campground, hop in your car and drive up to Dörfles. From there, follow the sign towards Geschwand. You'll pass through Sorg (a green sign) and 80m after it you'll see a road on the right with a little shack on the left near the trees. Park here. On the right is a path uphill and in 2 minutes you'll be there.
