A nice secluded and neglected crag. You're practically assured solitude here. The crag is located in the forest, making it ideal for warmer days where you'd like to escape the heat.
There are many shared anchors, making it easy to set up a top-rope and pick up many routes at once before having to move the anchor. And sometimes that would be a good idea, since some of the routes require placing your own gear or have very old slings which aren't really trustworthy anymore.
The crag is broken into an upper and lower portion.

Getting There 

The given GPS coordinates are for the parking area described. Drive to Möchs, which is just 2km south of Obertrubach (from Obertrubach, head West towards Wolfsberg/Untertrubach and turn left on the street directly across from Eldorado which leads you straight to Möchs). In Möchs, park next to the town mailbox (it's bright yellow and in the middle of town). If there are already cars here, drive down the paved road next to the mailbox towards the fields (signed towards Almos) and park in between the trees on the left - don't drive past the sign that designates that the road past this sign is only for use by pedestrians. Walk down this road all the way to the trees (about 500m or more) where it then turns left and 70m later forks. Turn right at the fork and in 250m take the next right. Follow this 200m and then head left into the woods up to the crag.

Finally, a chimney in the Frankenjura where you actually have to use chimney technique because the walls are pretty smooth and featureless. The start isn't all that easy, but once you get established you can just shimmy your way up. The anchor is at the top of the buttress on the right, when facing the chimney on the ground....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
