DescriptionFinding this unique feature should be fairly straight forward. Everyone descending from Sinocranium, the most popular route on Steinfels (Stone Rock) Dome, will pass by the beginning of Felspfeiler (Rock Pillar). Or, you can hike directly to it with just an additional 5-10 minutes walk up from the start of Sinocranium.
Pitch #1: Climb awkward yet fun down sloping holds up a steepening cruxy mid section to an easy roof and typical nice City slab to the top and a two-bolt belay. 5.8, 35m, 12 bolts.
Rappel the route.
LocationThis is the pillar-like spur feature on the East side of Steinfels Dome that almost looks like a detached tower from some angles. Find the beginning of the climb by following the familiar trail to Sinocranium and continue up the the East side of the Dome along the base of the rock for another 5 minutes.
The prominent pillar will soon come into view.
Rappel the route with one 70m rope. Tie knots into your belay end. It is a full 35m pitch, so use two ropes if using anything shorter than a full 70m rope!
