Frankendorfer Klettergarten Rock Climbing
This is a very large climbing area with tons of routes. The climbs are typically a bit short (between 20 and 50 feet) but due to the vastness of the routes, there's everything from UIAA 2 or 3 up to 9+. Obviously there is a great variety of climbing. Also, the rock quality ranges from super hard and compact to chossy. For that reason, this area has many sections (mostly those in the Annasteinseite area) which aren't very good.
The Klettergarten is broken up into 3 main sections: Annasteinseite, Dragonerwand, and Landrichterseite.
From the A73, take the Buttenheim exit and head towards Ebermannstadt. Drive through Gunzendorf and up to Frankendorf. The GPS coordinates point to the village of Frankendorf. The three main area descriptions provide directions from here.

In fact, stick clipping the first or placing a nut in the crack before it will do a lot for keeping this route comfortable. From the 2nd bolt, you have to follow the odd crack up and left where you'll find that the crack climbs like a sloper rail in the middle, making it pretty t...[more] Browse More Classics in International
