A stratified conglomerate of river-rock, may be limestone with various stone aggregate. The routes are short but fun. Am Herrgottschroffen translates as "abrupt man of God," referring to the nativity scene you abruptly come across as you climb "Klassiker." This is why many Americans have come to know it as Jesus Rock.

The bolts here show surface rust, no worries though, they are thick steel eye bolts that are mortared into the rock. The Romans may have installed them, so they are still bomber.

Getting There 

From Kaserne AST, go north toward the Kramer on Aussere Maxamilianstrasse, and turn left on Breitenauer strasse. Go past the Geiger teknik factory and follow the road straight after it turns into gravel all the way to the crag (just before a footbridge).
