A somewhat long and difficult approach plus the overgrown nature of the belay areas didn't impress me much. There may be a few decent 10s and 11s, as well as a couple harder ones, but I didn't get on them. The sun shines on the rock nicely though, and would be nice and warm on cold days.
This area has the main Fischfelsen and another small formation right next to it called Kleiner Fischfels.

Getting There 

In Dahn, drive to the parking lot for the ruins of Alt-Dahn (GPS coords. point here). Walk down the concrete-paved road for around 300m and stay straight where it forks. Continue another 100m and keep your eyes open for a small path on the left through the overgrowth. Continue another 100m or so until it makes a sharp right turn and keep to the right. Follow this until you see the crag and pick your way over to it the best you can.

Featured Route For Fischfelsen

Westanstieg zur Scharte 5.5 4b 13 IV+ 11 MS 4a  Europe : Germany : ... : Fischfelsen
Climb a bouldery start (I know, "Bouldery? It's 5.5!") to reach the gap between the boulder and the main crag. Then continue up the right side on dirty slopers. Try not to fall, even if you place pro. It doesn't look good.Either belay at the tree or head to the first belay stance of Normalweg if you want to use this route as an alternate start....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
