The Heldwand is a very popular crag for 5.12 climbers. The routes are juggy and slightly overhanging. These two factors may be the justification for the name, "Hero's Wall".

This crag is one of the few which is almost perpetually dry. Furthermore, it's extremely short and easy approach and large, flat surrounding area make it attractive for families with kids. If it gets too crowded for your taste, go to one of the neighboring crags (Zauppenberger Wand or Schweinsmühler Wände).

Getting There 

From the parking lot, hike into the woods and after 50m follow the climbers trail on your right to the wall.
