This is the parking area which provides access to Mittelbergwand, Castellwand, and Schlaraffenland. In other words, over 200 routes are at your fingertips from this location. The walk is typically about 10 minutes but it's totally worth it. The village offers you a good restaurant and a swimming pool for cooling off, and you don't have to move your car for a week if you don't want to. Car camping is also permitted here.

Getting There 

You're likely to approach Hirschbach from the south (either from the A3 or A9 onto the B14 through Hersbruck), so you'll definitely be traveling through Fischbrunn in that case. So from Fischbrunn continue to Hirschbach and as you enter the town there's a parking lot on the left for the swimming pool (Freibad). Park here. The GPS coordinates point to this parking lot.

Classic route, start is 5.8 to the first actual bolt, then it immediately steps up. Follow the crack over the lip then go to the anchors to the left. Crux is after the overhang. Save the anchors, do not lower off them if you don't have to, rappel if possible please! For top rope there is a lot of rope drag so use slings to extend the anchor to save your rope....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
