This 500m long formation is made up of the free-standing Pferchfeldturm (a tower) and the long crag. This crag has some of the best cracks in the Pfalz for their grade, as well as some scary face climbing, as well as some more modern sport routes.
This area is best visited in Spring and Autumn since the majority of the routes are exposed to the sun and it can get quite warm on the wall and humid in the Summer.

Getting There 

From Schindhard, drive towards Bärenbrunnerhof. Upon leaving Schindhard (marked by a sign at the edge of the village) start counting to 700m, where you'll find a small dirt road on the right and parking on the left at the edge of the forest. The GPS coordinates point here.

It starts with a difficult fingers section (keep to the right to make it easier) and then opens up to some nice hands and broadens into some tight chimney climbing. Then you climb out a roof and continue up easier rock.At the top, you can either stop at the last ring or continue to the absolute...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
