Description

This is the definition of classic! Quality climbing and the first route that Kurt Albert painted a red point on!
The first part of the route is admittedly slightly awkward and a tiny bit polished, but still good. For the first half of the route you're face climbing and the bolts are a little more spaced. The second half of the route follows a typical German bolted crack. You could pretty easily climb this whole route on gear, which makes it being the first sport climb in the Frankenjura ironic.

Location

When you come down the trail, a small trail branches off to the left and leads straight to the start of this climb.

Protection

8 bolts + anchor
