This is a popular shady area located in the forest about 10 minutes from the road. The area has a very wide range of styles and ratings mostly on high quality limestone that is extremely pocketed.
This area is also notable for hosting one of the hardest routes in the entire Frankenjura - The Man that Follows Hell. Unfortunately, it's only been repeated once, by Adam Ondra, who thought it was actually 9a instead of 9a+.

Getting There 

You can find Dörfles in your gps, so put that in. It's near Obertrubach. From Dörfles, head towards Sorg (Signalstein). Drive through Sorg (a very small village) and if you know where the Klagemauer is, continue past until you reach the curve (about 400m after Sorg). Park on the right before the curve in the road and hike down a wide hiker's trail on the right, shortly before the curve. The GPS Location given is for the parking area. Hike down for about 170m and follow the trail to the right. After about 100m you'll reach the first areas which have a few routes on them. The main sector is reached after another 180m and by heading to the left on another main trail.


The name means Green Hell.

Ebbelwoi Express 5.10d 6b+ 21 VII+ 21 E3 5b  Europe : Germany : ... : Upper Area
The longest route at the upper section of Grüne Hölle and very well-protected. It climbs pockets and good, comfortable holds up past or through the open dihedral.This is, in my opinion, one of the best 7s (5.10s) in the Frankenjura....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
