Methan is a small wall just right of Schoffl Block that has a couple routes of each grade from 5.9 to 5.12+. The routes are vertical to extremely overhanging and the wall goes into the shade around midday with some protection from the rain.

Getting There 

From the Green Climbers Home walk north along the main wall. Walk up a small hill toward Schoffl Block passing the toilet and follow the base of the wall another 100m to the right to Methan.
