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.

Climb up the same dihedral as Gerade R1 and get up to the very high second bolt. From here, follow the bolts to your right up through the crack. There might be an anchor through the top wide crack on the top, but I ended up using the same anchor that Knorpel uses....[more] Browse More Classics in International
