Vogelherdwand Rock Climbing
This 15m tall crag offers climbing on pockets which sometimes require endurance and sometimes only have one hard part. The crag gets very little traffic which is evidenced in the dusty holds, despite the fact that most of the routes were put in around 1994.
The climbing isn't over protected, but the bolts are at least placed where they are needed. The bolts are mostly rings which you can lower yourself off of, no matter where you are on the route.
The crag is, for the most part, west-facing so you get a bit of sun all year round, and a lot when there are no leaves on the trees. The ground here is level too which makes belaying and coming here with children comfortable.
From the parking area, continue past Z-Bau by following the road on the right of the fork. Eventually you'll reach a bench on the right. Turn here and go straight right along the edge of the trees. You'll see the crag through the trees.

Its about a V3 and has two closely placed bolts which allow you to also complete the route by "French freeing" it....[more] Browse More Classics in International
