Some Rock in Bayerischer Wald forbidden Details


Barracuda climbs the middle line through the big roof on the Rauchröhrenblock. As of this post (11/09), there have been six recorded ascents:
1. FFA: Michael Kies 1998
2. Dave Graham ‘01
3. Markus Windisch
4. Rosta Stefanek ‘06
5. Christian Lermer ‘07
6. Franz Schmidtlein ‘08

It is said to be XI- or XI (5.14c ~ 5.14d) and is reputed to be the most difficult climb in the Bayerischer Wald region. Warm up on Head and Shoulders X-(5.13c) just to the right.


If you are looking at the overhang on the Rauchröhrenblock (south side), barracuda is the third row of bolts from right. Climbs the centre of the roof.


5 bolts to anchor.

Barracuda is senza stella because I haven't climbed it, just hoping someone else will. Nov 12, 2009
