Another easy route up Röthelstein. The first pitch is often wet, but after that the route leads up slabby, water grooved rock and corners. There are grassy patches between multiple pitches, but they don´t interfer too much with the climbing. Pitch 5 is the crux of the route passing a short roof on big holds. On pitch 7 the rock narrows down to a half open tunnel you can either crawl through or circumvent on the outside using decent face holds on top. This section is followed by a steep corner and easy slab climbing broken up with walking to the top of the route.
After finishing the route follow a well walked path down to the right. This will eventually hit a forest service road that continues downhill to the right back to "Rote Wand" parking lot.
Park at "Rote Wand" parking lot and follow the logging road that continues to the west from the back of the lot. Follow this road until you see an intersection leading up to a wooden barn. Continue up th road to the right of the barn into the forest (red-white-red marking on tree). You will pass a sign that says "Mixnitz" (this leads down to the left and the town Mixnitz), continue up right and along a fence until you hit a grassy meadow (~30 min total). Continue aross the meadow towards the wall. The start of the route is about 50 m to the right of "Elfengarten" (lowest point of the wall) and is marked by a metal plaque with its name.
