Very cool little crag that offers perfect winter climbing. Unfortunately, you've got to want it because it can't be seen from afar and you just have to trust that you're going the right way when looking for it, and if you turned wrong, keep looking.
The rock is of course limestone and the climbing is characterized by generally vertical to partially overhanging. Two finger pockets and monos abound!
Follow the directions to Ziegenfelder Wände. From this parking lot, you have two options.
1) Park and walk back down the hill towards the church and head left to the lumber mill. Walk through the lumber mill and continue down the unpaved road for 350m. Here you should see a small fence (a very large pen for sheep) which you follow on the right side in the bottom of the valley. After 100m you'll see a trail that leads up 80m to the crag.
2) Continue driving past the parking lot to Großziegenfeld. Take the first right after entering the village and drive down the hill. Shortly after it starts to head a little uphill again you'll see a very small (too small to boulder on) cliff on your right. Park here on the side of the road. There is a vague trail leading off to the right through grass to a two-track "road", probably used by the farmer on his tractor. Go downhill on this to the edge of the woods where you'll see a path on your left. Go under the fruit trees and continue following the vague trail for about 300m until you can barely make out a side of this crag a short ways away on your right. Continue on the trail around the gulley and up, then head down the grassy hill to come around to the left side of the crag where Waldenburger Poppenkiste is located.

I think this route is really cool, but if you just like overhung pocket pulling, you might not.There is only one bolt on this short route, which does a good job of protecting the crux. The crux is a technical move pulling up into the slab (ie. practically no holds up there). It's not bad once you figure out what to do, but it will make you think....[more] Browse More Classics in International
