Description 

South facing. Less steep than the other sectures with hard routes. The routes here tend to be more runout and stiffer than at other areas along the Ceuse cliff band. Great rock and technical climbing on smaller holds. Just right of center there are a handfull or 5.10/5.11 routes. The left half of the wall is stacked with hard 5.12 and 5.13 routes while the are some easier 5.12's in the middle and some mid-range 5.12 on the far right.

A little different flavor for the Berlin Wall. More crimps and jugs than slippery pockets. As you move upward the rests gradually get worse and the climbing gets thinner and harder. A few bolts of continuous crimpy climbing guard the chains and are guaranteed to spit off anyone carrying a healthy pump. A very good pitch of rock climbing. Low in the grade compared to it's neighbors....[more]   Browse More Classics in International

No doubt one of the best walls of sport climbing on the planet. The left side of the Berlin is, in my opinion, the absolute best chunk of stone I've ever climbed on. The majority of these routes would be the crowning pitch at nearly any other crag.
