These two sunny walls offer pleasant climbing with an easy approach. It's best to visit here in the Spring and Fall as the walls are somewhat shaded by the trees.

The climbing follows features (cracks, flakes, bumps - crimps and slopers) for the most part, though a typical Frankenjura pocket may show itself now and then.

Getting There 

Get to Alfeld. You can do this by heading east on the A6 from Nürnberg in the direction of Amberg and taking Exit 63.

From Alfeld, head in the direction of Thalheim. After about 3.5km you'll see a dirt road on the right with a sign indicating Klaramühle. Turn here and after 500m park on the left in front of the Kirchthalmühle. In front of you on the trees you'll see pink circles marking the way to the crag, which is a 5 minute walk uphill.

The GPS coordinates indicate the parking area.
