Another older crag with a nice approach time (5 mins). The name of this crag translates to "Blank Wall" and from that you can deduce what the climbing is mostly like. Technical and difficult.
This crag also has a couple of other bonuses. It is the site of the Muschelquelle, a nice little well from which fresh water flows. The name means "Sea shell source" and there are lots of information boards for kids. There's even a little playground for kids, making this pretty much THE BEST crag for parents who bring their kids with to climbing.

Getting There 

In Streitberg, head up towards Plankenfels and before you leave head to the right down the road to the "Muschelquellenweg". Park here and walk down the Muschelquellenweg for 450m to reach the crag.
