A classic area with a bunch of routes which are located on different sides of the same very large formation. There are some classic routes here, but most of them are difficult.

Getting There 

Drive to Rupprechtstegen, which is south of Velden. At the north end of the town, on your way to Velden, you'll see this crag on your left. There is parking on both sides of the street.
You can also reach this crag relatively quickly and easily with the train from Nürnberg. If you choose this route, walk from the train station through Rupprechstegen (or along the river on the nice hiking trail) in the direction of Velden until you see this crag on your left. There's a bridge to cross from the trail to the town, and this bridge also happens to lie directly in front of the crag.

I took this picture, THEN saw the anchor up above where I lowered. The anchor is a bit higher than this last bolt.

Tricky climbing on small holds through the first two bolts. Upon clipping the third bolt the hardest parts are over, but you've still got a slabby section followed by an overhang to go through before reaching the anchor....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
