This is a slabby old sandstone quarry with an array of fun slopers. A Klettergarten it is called. Most climbs are 30 meters or less, there are a few multi(two)-pitch routes, UIAA between 3 and 7 (5.4-5.10c), most come in at 5 (5.7). All belays are in the shade, climbing often in the sun. You may climb here year round, it will just be practice climbing on wet sandstone in the winter. Here is a wonderful topo site:

At Bad Heilbrunn, the grades start at almost walking on far left and gradually get more and more difficult. This makes it a wonderful place to take beginners and to train. Even better, if you get rained out, there is a 9m climbing gym in town for 5euro with a sauna, pizza, and pro-shop. You may hear this place referred to as the Bichl crag as it is also close to Bichl.

NOTE: Please do not top-rope off of anchors, hang your own locking from them, and rapp-clean, this will preserve the anchors. Please do not walk off the top. The rock here may be brittle. BE SURE TO USE A 60m ROPE.

Getting There 

Bad Heilbrunn is located between Bichl and Bad Toeltz. Take the A95(E533) North out of Garmisch, or South from Munich and get off at Sindelsdorf. Go through Bichl on 472 and follow it past a Y that goes to Baumberg (stay to the right), after the Y look for the unmarked pull of/parking on the right, slightly hidden by woods.

A 5.4 with two stars? Yes it is that fun to race up this gritty palmer. Follow the bolt line, or if there is low traffic, traverse to other routes. It is the furthest one to the left....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
