Climbing in the German Alps. Whether you're looking for maximum exposure on a multi-pitch classic, pleasant sport climbing at a family-friendly crag or bouldering, you'll find it here. To help navigate, you can plan your visit around sport climbing (follow the "Crags" link) or multi-pitch (follow the "Alpine" link). Additionally, since they are sometimes next to each other or even on the same cliff, the map helps provide some orientation.

Getting There

Pleasure climbing at its best, this route has a little of everything. It's mostly slab (as the route's name implies), but the 10th and 11th pitches offer up more vertical and slightly overhanging climbing.The crux is on pitch 4 and climbs thin side-pulls to reach a juggy ledge. It can also be aided (and is therefore obviously well protected) or dynoed. The rest of the pitches typically range between UIAA 4 and 5 (5.5 - 5.8), though there are several easier pitches, including an unprotected walk ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
