Description 

Blockgrat is situated next to Falkenwand and is one of the best parts of Battert. Moreover, it boasts the most classic climb of the area, "Blockgrat," a two pitch UIAA 4+ (YDS ~5.4) route that sees you ascend a small tower, then stem over to the main wall with nothing but 30 meters of air below you. This is the most photogenic route of them all. Get here early before or mid week! Otherwise you'll be waiting in line.

17 routes overall with a good mix of easy and moderate.

Coming from the Ebersteinburg parking lot, find the "Einsiedlerpfad" sign, painted on the rock and then head back right but upwards to the base. Takes 2 minutes tops from the Unterer Felsweg.

Getting There 

Number 11 on overall Battert crag map and right next to Falkenwand.

If you only do one route in Battert, this should be it. It's fairly easy, the most photogenic by far and just plain fun. From the start, it isn't immediately clear you're climbing a tower. Once you get to the belay, i.e. sitting on top of the little tower it is. The top of the tower is just big enough for 2 people, pretty tight for 3. The crux is stepping off the tower onto the wall. It's not as bad as it first looks...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
