Röthelfels 16 - Knirbelweg Rock Climbing
This sector has lots of routes in the UIAA 6 range, with a couple 5s and a 7- also. There are routes which climb the face using the vast amount of pockets, some which follow cracks, and some which follow chimneys. This sector can get somewhat crowded, especially since it's the first sector you come to from the parking lot if you go straight up the hill. The forest keeps the bottom portion of the cliff shaded, but due to the height of the wall (up to 30m - bring a 70m rope) you leave the shade of the trees and stay in the sun for a while.
From the parking lot, cross the street and head uphill on the path. The path goes pretty much straight uphill to the wall. If you continue straight uphill, you should come to Daniel. From there, head right for about 50m.

Continue up the easy climbing through one more bolt. At a stance at the next bolt continue straight up through...[more] Browse More Classics in International
