The hardest move is the bouldery start, with some strenuous sideholds. Would have been an awesome clean climb through cracks and an awesome dihedral. The bolts are placed unlogical and unnecessary....[more]   Browse More Classics in International

Unfortunatly only in German.

I don't have a lot of experiance with Basalt (having only climbed here and down the road in Kottenheim), however, it is pretty good I think. The rock on the gear routes generally seem solid and the fixed gear is good. The only issue I have it the use of single bolt anchors... maybe that is just me.

There is a guild book, but it is only in German as well (despite the claim on the cover!!). There is some history in English, but relavant info in all in German.

This is the closest crag to where I live now, so I will try to update as I become more familier.
