This is a small town right near Landeck which lies West-Southwest of Imst (which is almost directly West of Innsbruck). It is one of the stops along the famous "E5" hiking trail which runs from Oberstdorf in Germany to Meran in Italy. It's a very nice area with good food, climbing and hiking. There are even a couple of small lakes for cooling off on a warm summer's day.

Getting There 

Use the GPS coordinates to let yourself be easily guided straight to the parking area indicated on this little map:
Otherwise, here's a short description:
Head West from Innsbruck towards Imst along the A12. Continue past Imst and take the exit for Zams/Landeck. At the stop sign take a right onto the B171 towards Landeck. After about 200m you'll reach a roundabout where you continue straight. When the road starts to turn left to go over a bridge, hang a right (don't go over the bridge). Take the next right and follow "Burschlweg" to the crag and the parking area. The crag is reached after walking 5 minutes!
