The rock is thus named for the window-like feature on the side which faces the Bindersbacher Turm. This classic and unique route (Fensterfels-Normalweg) is rated a UIAA 1, and it has some serious history. Furthermore, if you‘re particularly ballsy, you can try the jump across from the Bindersbacher Turm (the Verzweifelungssprung). Apparently it‘s rated grade 3 on the "jumping scale".

Getting There 

From the free parking lot, walk across the road where it forks into the woods inside the loop that the road forms. Where it forks, take the left trail until you can see the crags appearing on the ridge above you. There is a trail which leads you up the hill to the towers, so don‘t get too antsy.

This route is very defined. You can very easily climb up to the end holds, but to say you actually did „Michel‘s Idee“, you need to start with your left hand on the left-facing flake and your right on the crimpy undercling 1.5m to the right. Stand up and fall into the slopey pocket with your LEFT hand and go directly to the end holds from here. There are SD start variations which add difficulty....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
