Experiencing the Power of Love on Dachlwand.


Literally “Roof Wall”, Dachlwand is home to a great assortment of excellent 5.12s and a pair of long traverses. So-named for a steep bulge that extends across the length of the wall, some might argue the name is a bit of a misnomer, especially since the region is littered with far-grander roofs. Most of the routes are generally vertical or slightly overhanging with a few steep moves near the top.

The rock is excellent, with a base layer of less-featured white stone, and a capping layer of relatively juggy black stone. The result is a great assortment of excellent endurance routes that all seem to culminate in a pumpy run to the top. The crag faces south and offers little shade.

Getting There 

From Obertrubach, head west past Eldorado, and park at the first building you see on the right. Follow a good trail behind the building on the left, which heads back right, up a short steep hill to the cliff (which is visible from the road).

This memorable Kurt Albert classic will test your stamina, and your reach. The climbing is burly, with a clear crux surmounting the intimidating roof (which is bigger than it appears from the ground). A relatively easy start leads up the white wall to a good stance below the roof. Make a few pumpy moves up and right through steepening white rock to a horizontal break in the crook of the roof. A massive span, likely accompanied by a lunge, will get you to the key hold at the lip. Throw up a ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
